Campaign to ignite Lancer pride heating up

This weekend is one of the final opportunities to qualify for a draw to win an Apple iPad tablet computer by cheering on the Lancers through the Ignite Pride campaign. Fans in attendance at the basketball games against Western, Saturday in the Dennis Fairall Fieldhouse, can check in to earn a ballot. Get the details on the campaign website.
