Tomorrow night (Wednesday, March 3) will be the last home game at the Thunderdome for seniors James Powell and Paul Roemer. Start time is 7 pm, but fans should get there early as both players will be saluted prior to the game against the UC-Irvine Anteaters. UCI beat the Gauchos in the Big West Conference season opener, so there will be an element of revenge, but more importantly, a Gaucho win will clinch the #1 seed for the Big West Tournament (BWT) in Anaheim next week.
Fortunately, the Gauchos have already clinched at worst a #2 seed, so they will earn an automatic bye into the semifinals of the BWT. But first things first: a win in their last home game would be a nice send-off for the seniors.
