In an expected sellout the CSU Bakersfield men’s basketball team will be hosting Grand Canyon University Saturday Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. in an effort to gain momentum heading into the Western Athletic Conference Tournament.

The WAC Tournament will be from March 9-12 in Las Vegas, N.V. at the Orleans Arena.

The Roadrunners’ (19-8, 9-3 WAC) conference losses have all came from either New Mexico State University or Grand Canyon (24-4 16-2 WAC).

Grand Canyon has the best overall record in the conference. The Antelopes are led by redshirt-sophomore Joshua Braun who is averaging 17.7 points per game, which is second in the WAC. As a team, Grand Canyon is averaging a league-leading 77.5 points per game.

For the Roadrunners, the team has struggled against good teams in the WAC. CSUB is averaging a league worst 65.7 percent from the free-throw line.

CSUB senior center Aly Ahmed and senior forward Kevin Mays. Ahmed is averaging a team high 14 points per game, good for eighth best in the conference and 6.6 rebounds per game, which is sixth best in the conference.

Mays is averaging 12.6 points per game, twelfth best in the conference, and 8.1 rebounds per game, third best in the conference.

In the first game the Roadrunners had against Grand Canyon on Jan. 28 the Antelopes led by as much as 14 in the game in a 70-64 win against CSUB. The Roadrunners made a late scoring run towards the end of the game but Grand Canyon scored baskets when it mattered the most.

Homecoming king and queen will be announced at halftime.
