Wittenberg-Wooster Rivalry Produces Great Men's Basketball Games

Tonight's Wittenberg at Wooster game has the potential to be a great game - but so does every meeting between the two storied programs. Last month, the Tigers topped the Fighting Scots by a single point in a thrilling 87-86 victory.

Tonight's game will affect both the conference championship and the seeding of the upcoming NCAC Tournament. As if the atmosphere in Timken Gymnasium wouldn't be electric enough, the Wooster athletic department is encouraging all Scots' fans to wear white in support of the team.
