The Mary Baldwin men’s basketball team will make school history when it squares off against Ferrum College in the Physical Activities Center on Nov. 20. The contest will be the first home game of the squad’s inaugural season.
Head coach Matt Griggs says his men are excited to showcase their skills. Some players were able to compete essentially as a club team in 2020, playing in a handful of scrimmages and unofficial exhibition matches. But now it’s the real deal.
“We attended women’s games last year and were impressed by the atmosphere of support,” said Griggs. “Our goal is to play high-energy, high-quality basketball and keep the crowd engaged so we can capitalize on that home court advantage.”
