WINCHESTER, Va. – The Shenandoah University men's and women's basketball teams return to the court tomorrow evening with a pair of ODAC contests.
The EMU contest is the first of four consecutive Wednesday home games for the men.
The Shenandoah women (7-8, 3-3 ODAC) have won two of the nine lifetime matchups versus the Marlins with both of the wins coming at VWU.
Last season, SU, the No. 11 seed in the ODAC Tournament, took out seventh-seeded Virginia Wesleyan with an 82-73 victory.
That win advanced the Hornets to the Salem Civic Center for the ODAC Quarterfinals for the third time in five seasons of league play.
Arcata is just 40 points from 1000 for her career – she will be the 18th woman in program history to achieve that mark and the first since Holly Chittenden '15, '18 D.PT on February 4, 2015 did it at Bridgewater.
The Shenandoah men are looking to snap an 11-game losing streak to Eastern Mennonite in what is likely to be the team's penultimate contest ever in Shingleton Gymnasium. The Hornets (7-8, 2-4) have a one-game lead over EMU in the league standings coming into the contest and a 1-1 record versus common opponents to the Royals 0-2.
EMU also has three men: Isaiah Harris-Winn, RaShawn Latimer and Maleke Jones, hitting in double figures per game. Harris-Winn tops this group at 14.9 ppg.
Both games are the first of home-and-home matchups this season. On Valentine's Day, the women host VWU in its Play4Kay game while the men make the short trip down I-81 for the rematch with Eastern Mennonite.
