Tip-off Classic a test for Lancer men’s basketball

An exhibition game against the Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne Mastodons will provide a pre-season test for the Lancer men’s basketball team, says head coach Chris Oliver.

“The early competition will be the first game for many of our newcomers,” he says. “However, it will also be the first game for many veteran players in new roles as we re-define our team after graduating three impactful players.”

Last season was the last for fifth-year Lancers Josh Collins, Enrico Diloreto and Lien Phillip.

The 10th annual NCAA/OUA Tip-Off Classic is set for 5 p.m. Wednesday, August 13, at the St. Denis Centre. Tickets for the event will be available at the door for $5.

The Mastodons are coming off a 25-11 season, the best in program history. Read the full story, “Lancers host IPFW in annual Tip-off Classic,” at goLancers.ca.
