FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Mountie men and women host East Stroudsburg in key PSAC East games Wednesday night

 

MANSFIELD Ė The Mansfield University menís and womenís basketball teams will host East Stroudsburg in a pair of key PSAC East games Wednesday night in Decker Gymnasium.

The womenís game starts at 5:30 p.m. with the men following at 7:30 p.m.

The Mountaineer women have shown steady improvement in conference play, including a two-point loss at second place Kutztown last Wednesday. They trailed Division leader West Chester by just four points at halftime on Saturday.

Mansfield is currently 0-4 in PSAC East play, but all four losses have come to the top four teams in the division.

The Mountaineer men are just one game behind four teams tied for first place in the PSAC East. Mansfield is 2-2 in the PSAC after handing West Chester its first conference loss of the season last Saturday.

Admission, which includes both games, is $5 for adults and $3 for students. MU students are admitted free with their Mansfield IDís. The first 200 MU students will also receive free collector banners at the game.
