Will Burridge Gym provide kinder territory for Mac cagers?

The McMaster basketball teams is hoping that the start of a new year can help them build some momentum as Ontario University Athletics West division play tips off Wednesday (Jan. 5) in the Burridge Gym.

The Marauders will face the Laurier Golden Hawks in doubleheader action with the women’s game starting at 6 p.m., followed by the men’s contest at 8 p.m.

The Marauder women’s team is coming off a tough road trip to Saskatchewan, where they dropped a pair of games to the No. 2 ranked Huskies, and lost a close 83-70 decision to the No. 3 ranked Regina Cougars.

The men’s team is glad to be back at home after playing in the Winnipeg Wesmen tournament over the holiday break. The Marauders lost their first two games to Winnipeg and Jamestown College, before ending the tournament with a win over Minot State of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.
