Saturday’s game will be the most important of the season for two reasons – it’s the next game on the schedule and it’s against rival-Missouri Western. We hope to have a packed Bearcat Arena Saturday afternoon and we’re asking you to help make that happen.
Jim and Amy Goecken of The Student Body (and Center Court Cat Club members) will be giving away 300 Bearcat basketball t-shirts and numerous gift certificates. In addition, Carson’s Sports Grille will hand out certificates and host our CCCC post-game social (contact me if you are a CCCC member and plan to attend!)
Adding to the game’s importance are its MIAA Tournament implications. There are five games left on the slate, including three home games in each of the next three Saturday’s. Three games separate us from the fourth-place Griffons, who have one win on our court since 2002. Each game is important for every team fighting to play in March.
In the last decade, we’ve had one of the best home records in all of Division II (113-23) and we have you to thank for providing us one of the best atmospheres in which to compete. We hope everyone will come out, be loud and crazy, and make Saturday afternoon a green and white one.
See you then!
