“It’s going to be really nice to get back to Gersten and play in front of our home fans,” Lions head coach Charity Elliott said. “We’ve done a great job of taking care of business on the road and now we’re home for a while. We need to make sure we set the tone for when opponents come to play us at our place.”
Fans in attendance on Tuesday night will receive a LMU Basketball t-shirt, a 2017-18 team poster and can meet the women’s basketball players during a postgame autograph session after the matchup.
