Cage Capers meet Mac Marauders


The McMaster women’s basketball team plays its first home game this week in the friendly confines of the Burridge Gym when they take on the Cape Breton University Capers tonight (Thursday, Oct. 28) at 7 o’clock in exhibition play.

The Marauders have spent the past two weekends on the road at the Ryerson and New Brunswick tournaments respectively, and return home with a record of two wins and four losses. Cape Breton has been a national power in recent years and played in the Burridge Gym last March as the Atlantic University Sports representative for the Canadian Interuniversity Sports championship hosted by McMaster.

Marauder sophomore forward Nicole Rosenkranz has started the year on a torrid pace, averaging 18.6 point per game and 10 rebounds per game over the first six games of the year. The Maroon have also been playing without a full line-up of late, as several players have been bitten by the injury bug.

The Marauders are preparing for the start of Ontario University Athletics conference play, which gets underway on Friday, Nov. 5 in Toronto against the Ryerson Rams. Next home action will be on Friday, Nov. 12 when McMaster welcomes Laurentian to the Burridge Gym.
