Lancer basketball set to open post-season campaigns

Lancer women’s basketball will open the defense of its national and provincial titles Wednesday when the team hosts the Laurier Golden Hawks in the preliminary round of the Ontario University Athletics playoffs. The men will play their first game of the post-season later that same night against the Laurentian Voyageurs.

Both Windsor squads finished at the top of the OUA west division standings—the women at 15-5 and the men at 14-6—which under the league’s playoff structure, ranked them sixth and fifth, respectively.

Admission to the March 2 action is $12 for both games with a $10 youth and seniors rate, and $3 for UWindsor students with ID. The women will tip off at 6 p.m. and the men at 8 p.m. in the St. Denis Centre.
