Saturday, February 25 - CSI Basketball
If you haven't been out to see the CSI men's basketball team or the women's basketball team you are missing out on two special seasons. The men are ranked number one in the country according to the NJCAA polls and looking to finish off a perfect regular season as they are currently 29-0, with the regular season finale this weekend. The women look to end their regular season on a hot streak, being ranked fourth in the polls and on a 15-game winning streak and currently stand at 26-2. Both teams will wrap up the regular season on Saturday against Salt Lake Community College. The last time the women played, it was one of their only two losses on the season. The women will look for revenge at 1 PM, with the men following after the game, tipping off at 3 PM. This is the final home game of the season, so if you haven't been to a game, make sure to clear your schedule for Saturday afternoon.
The weather could potentially be nice, and there is no reason to stay at home this weekend. Enjoy some drinks and dancing at a masquerade ball, support the local basketball teams, learn how to enjoy some relief, learn how to deal with mental health, listen to some classical music, or enjoy a musical. If none of these fit your liking, there are always tons of other options as well. Whatever you decide to do this weekend, have fun, be safe, and enjoy your weekend.
