EASTON, Pa. -
Lafayette fans attending the men's and women's basketball games this Saturday against archrival Lehigh are encouraged to wear maroon, in an effort to "maroon out" Kirby Sports Center and Lehigh's Stabler Arena.
Both teams come into Saturday's games with winning streaks, the women's at three after a dramatic 64-58 overtime win at Bucknell and the men with a five game unbeaten streak, including a perfect 4-0 to start the Patriot League.
The Leopard men make the trek to Lehigh Saturday night in sole possession of first place after their 80-68 win over Bucknell Wednesday night.
Lafayette fans can purchase tickets for the women's game online at the GoLeopards.com ticket store, by calling the athletic ticket office at (610) 330-5471 or on gameday. A very limited of tickets from the Lafayette allotment remain for the men's game Saturday night. To purchase tickets for the men's game, call the Athletic Ticket Office at (610) 330-5471.
