Willamette Basketball Home Games with Lewis & Clark Moved to Feb. 9

By Robert McKinney, Athletics Communications Director, (503) 370-6110

SALEM, ORE. -- The Willamette University men's and women's basketball teams will host Lewis & Clark College at Cone Field House on Thursday, Feb. 9 instead of a day later. The games, which were originally scheduled for Friday, Feb. 10, have been rescheduled to avoid a conflict with Willamette's inauguration of President Stephen E. Thorsett.

The women's game between the Bearcats and the Pioneers will still open the doubleheader, with action set to start at 6 p.m. (PST). The men's game will follow at approximately 8 p.m.

Athletic directors at Willamette and Lewis & Clark approved the change. Northwest Conference interim Commissioner Wendy Guthrie provided the final approval.
