Busy Weekend Ahead at the JAAC

With the University of St. Thomas-Houston basketball season nearing its end, Men's and Women's Basketball will host their final home game this Saturday, Feb. 19, at 12:00 p.m. (MBB) and 2:00 p.m. (WBB) in the Jerabeck Activity and Athletic Center.

A number of festivities will surround these contests. Men's Basketball seniors — Christian Alaekwe, Cameron Gims and Juan Hood — will be honored prior to tipoff. The Celts will take on the Colorado College Tigers for the chance to claim their third straight Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship. This would mark four consecutive years that the Men's Basketball program has claimed a conference championship, having won the Red River Athletic Conference tournament title in 2018-2019.

At half time in the Men's game, the entire Men's Soccer team will be honored. The Celts will celebrate their historic season as their 2021 championship banner will be revealed. The Celts downed perennial power and No. 2 ranked team in the country, Trinity University, to sit atop the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference.

Furthermore, prior to the tip of the Women's Basketball game, four seniors, Jade Evans, Olivia Anga, Eneily Rodriguez and Alexya Castillo, will be highlighted as they play in their last game at The JAAC!
