Men's Basketball Game TONIGHT vs Otterbein at 7:30 PM

Men’s Basketball has its first game of the Spring semester tonight at 7:30 PM against the Otterbein Cardinals.

The Pioneers (2-5 OAC, 5-8 overall) will take on the Cardinals (2-5 OAC, 4-10 overall) in a battle for the basement.  The top eight teams in the OAC advance to the conference tournament at the end of February.  The Pioneers currently sit in eighth, while Otterbein sits ninth and Muskingum tenth.

Marietta is led by Trevor Halter, who comes into the game scoring over 20 points in his past two games.  He was named OAC Men’s Basketball player of the week after 29 points and 10 rebounds in a win over Muskingum (0-7 OAC, 5-9 overall).  He followed that up with 21 points in a loss to Ohio Northern (5-2 OAC, 7-7 overall).

Otterbein comes into this game off of a victory over Mount Union (3-4 OAC, 5-9 overall), their second conference win of the year.  Senior Brian Pollock had 29 points in their last game, against Mount Union.  The Cardinals did not let the Purple Raiders score a single point from the field for 13 straight minutes, including the first six minutes of the second half.

Come check out your Pioneers tonight at Ban Johnson Arena.  Tip is at 7:30 PM.  Can’t get to Fenton Court?  88.3 WMRT-FM will be broadcasting the game over the air and streaming online at the Marietta Athletics page.

Men's Basketball Takes The Court Wednesday Night

Marietta College’s Men’s Basketball team will take to Fenton Court in Ban Johnson Arena at the Dyson Baudo Recreation Center (gasps for breath) for the first home game of the season Wednesday, December 3rd.  Tip-off should be around 7:30 PM.  The game has been designated as a “white-out” for fans, so if you’re coming, wear white and cheer on the Pioneers as they take on Denison.

A lot of students are anticipated to come to the game, as athletes in other sports and the campus’s Greek life have been asked to be the backbone of the  “white-out” effort.  Advertising on campus has been heavy as of last night, with the rock being painted and signs/table cards places across campus.

Later in the week, the Pios will take on Ohio Northern in what will be a kick-off to Ohio Athletic Conference play.  That game is Saturday, December 6th at 3 PM on Fenton Court in Ban Johnson Arena at…oh…you know where.

The game is being broadcast on 88.3 WMRT-FM (Marietta, Parkersburg, Athens, and everywhere in between).  Calling the game will be yours truly alongside long-time voice of the Pioneers, Mike Washbaugh.  Look for pre-game coverage to start around 7:20 PM EST.  You can catch the stream online of our coverage (or WMOA’s coverage) by going to Marietta’s Streaming Audio page.

For a look further into the Men’s Basketball season, check out the schedule here.  And to see how the 2-2 Pioneers look in the OAC so far, check here.  It’s looking like a good season so far (if you don’t count the two 20-25 point losses), and looks like last year’s six wins should be passed (four out of conference wins, two in conference).

Good luck guys!  Should be a good season.
