The women’s basketball team will tip off against the Ryerson Rams in an Ontario University Athletics quarter-final Saturday at 2 p.m. in the St. Denis Centre. The Lancers earned a bye through the preliminary round after finishing atop the west division standings.

Tickets for these home games are $10, with a youth and senior rate of $8, and $3 admission for UWindsor students. There will be no advance ticket sales; pay at the door starting one hour before game time.
