ATHLETICS | Basketball is back on campus this week with an added game. The women’s team game from last week in Santa Barbara was rescheduled for tonight at 7 p.m. against the Gauchos. This will be the last opportunity to see the team before they return to open WCC play on Dec. 28 against St. Mary’s and Dec. 30 against Pacific. The men’s team is coming back from their weekend in Seattle and hosting their Community Night this Friday. Bring your friends and family for $1 admission and $1 hot dogs, as well as free LMU holiday ornaments for the first 500 fans.
