Lancers Gearing Up For Game At Caesars

A first of it's kind for the Windsor Lancers basketball program.

Windsor is set to take on the Laurier Golden Hawks Wednesday afternoon at Caesars Windsor.

It's all part of the 'Clash at the Colosseum 4'.

Lancer Womens Head Coach, Chantal Vallee, says it's going to be a great place to play.

"What was really cool is we came into practice in the Colosseum, I had not seen it. It's a really, really nice venue and the way that the seats are set up and the court is on the floor actually, I think it got us pretty excited. We actually had one of the best practices all year. So we might have to come back more than just once a year."

She says the team jumped on the opportunity to play at Caesars.

"Of course, for us, it means losing home court advantage, but it's all about the player's experience and the kid's experience. So, as a university athlete, to have the chance to play at the Colosseum is a big deal. Last year we had a chance to play at the NBA All-Star Game. We played on the NBA court, a league game, and now it's something similar. It'll be fun too for the players to have these memories for a life time."

The womens game goes at 3pm...the men play at 5pm.

And later on in the night the Windsor Express take on the Kitchener Waterloo Titans at 8pm.

Tickets to the event are still available.
