As we find ourselves in the heart of the holidays, with the new year right around the corner, head coach Mike McGrath has a few words for Maroons fans…
Chicago Basketball Friends:
The team played their last game on Saturday heading into Winter Break, defeating Albion on the road. That puts us at 8-2 and we are currently ranked #22 in the country. After dropping two of our first three games, we have now won seven in a row. We have one last non-conference game at Illinois Tech on Jan 2nd, before starting UAA play on Jan 9th at Wash U. It has been a good start and it is nice to have a little break to spend time with friends and family over the holidays, but the team is very excited about the road ahead in 2016. We hope to see you in the new year at some games!
Additionally, the team would also like to thank you for all of your support and wish you happy holidays…
Also, a couple of notes:
* Thank you to all who have made generous contributions to the program over the past several years. This support is vital to helping us provide the best experience possible for our players and reach our goal of having the best Division III men’s basketball program in the country. Many of you should have received a brochure from the department about the new “Friends of Maroon Athletics” initiative, as we are expanding the efforts to support our athletes more aggressively. The brochure can be found here: Friends of Maroon Athletics.
If you would like to make a contribution to the program this year, please use the following link: Make A Gift. As always, your support is greatly appreciated.
* Alumni – do not forget to plan on “Legends Weekend” (Jan 22-24). Invitations will follow in early January, but the major event will be a reception in the Berwanger Trophy Room at 6:00pm prior to our game vs NYU at 8:00pm. The annual alumni game will take place on Saturday.
