Men's Basketball Set to Open SAC Tournament at Goodman Gym
The Catawba men’s basketball team will host Tusculum in the first round of the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Men's Basketball Tournament on Wednesday evening at Goodman Gym. The game is part of a SAC event, therefore no Chiefs Club passes will be honored. Admission prices are $6 for adults and $3 for students. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
The Indians are the #4-seed for the tournament, but lost both games to Tusculum during the regular season. The teams are meeting for the fourth time in the SAC Tournament over the last five years. Both times in the previous years, the team that swept the regular season meetings lost the tournament first round match-up. The Catawba-Tusculum winner advances to the tournament semifinals in Hickory at Catawba Valley Community College on Saturday at 1 o'clock.
