Tip-off is scheduled for 11 a.m. The team has partnered with the Washoe County School District for a “When I Grow Up” field trip event. The game is free to the public.

“We are excited to have our local elementary and middle school students come to Lawlor and cheer us on,” head coach Jane Albright said. “The kids will really bring a lot of energy to our team that we will need to face a tough Grand Canyon team. I was pleased with the way we limited our turnovers over the weekend in our loss on the road. We are ready for another opportunity to get better and will look to get back in the win column.”

The meeting marks the first between the two programs. The Antelopes are led by Judy Jones, who is averaging 14.8 ppg., and 8.9 rpg.
