Brock has changed the venue of their home game against arch-rival McMaster Marauders to the Meridian Center on Wednesday, February 24th. Recall the Badgers drew over 2,800 fans to their game against Lakehead in November at the newly-built St. Catharines sports arena. Given the opponent and the probable importance of the game, most are anticipating a sell-out crowd in the 5,000 range, which if memory serves is what the venue can hold for basketball.
Good on the Badgers to attach a higher profile to this rivalry game which involves a pair of CIS Top 10 teams and could have Wilson Cup implications.
Brock won the first game between these two teams by double digits at McMaster in the first regular season game of ’15-’16 for both teams in Hamilton.
