The women's basketball squad is hosting its annual Take a Kid to the Game day Saturday. All children 13 and under receive free admission with the purchase of an adult ticket. There will also be giveaways, on-court promotions and an autograph session after the game. Moravian enters the game at 13-5 overall this season and 5-2 in Landmark Conference action.
The afternoon wraps up with the men's contest as both coaching staffs will be participating in the American Cancer Society and National Association of Basketball Coaches – Coaches vs. Cancer Suits & Sneakers campaign with both benches donning sneakers for the game.
