Welcome to Wednesday as basketball gets into their first full week of conference play. Safe travels to the women’s team who is en route today to NM State where they will take on the Aggies tomorrow night at 7 PM (MT).
CSUB plays at UT Pan American on Saturday afternoon.
On the men’s side, CSUB is hosting NM State tomorrow night at the Icardo Center. Both the Aggies and ‘Runners are working through the injury bug. Aly Ahmed is once a game-time decision for the Roadrunners while NM State is playing without two of their top returning scorers due to injury while a couple other supporting players are down as well.
Also make sure you check out today’s Bakersfield Californian, a new page debuts that is a complete recap from yesterday’s Roadrunner Rundown. It’s a new concept that further profiles our student-athletes and show content. Check it out.
Speaking of which, here’s yesterday’s show that includes Rod Barnes’ preview of the WAC weekend of play and Kevin Mays, junior forward and the WAC’s leading rebounder.
