Mountain Lion Basketball to Host Regis Tonight

By Matthew Friesen published January 13, 2012

onight at the Gallogly Event Center on the UCCS campus, the Mountain Lion men and women will host the Regis Rangers in the first home stand of 2012.  The women play at 5:30 pm followed by the men at 7:30 pm.

The Mountain Lions have spent the majority of their young season on the road.  Tonight's games mark just the 7th home game for the men and only the 5th home game for the women (out of 16 games each for both teams). 

The Mountain Lion Women come into the game tonight with a 9-6 overall record, 4-5 in RMAC play.  The match up with Regis (6-9 overall, 4-5 RMAC) will be an important decision as both teams control their own destiny for the post season tournament.  With a win tonight, the Lady Mountain Lions would provide a key victory in their pursuit of the post season.

The UCCS Men continue to feel the rejuvenation of their up-tempo, exciting style of play.  At 5-4 in RMAC play, the men's team is in prime position to continue hunting for the post season.  Regis' men come in to the game with 4-9 overall record, 1-8 in RMAC play.
