#25 Tigers to Open Home and Conference Slate Saturday vs. E&H

HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, VA-The #25 Hampden-Sydney Tigers (2-1, 0-0 ODAC) will open up both their home and ODAC season with a Saturday afternoon match up against the Wasps of Emory & Henry (0-2, 0-0). Tip-off is set for 2:00 pm.

The Tigers started the season with two 20+ point victories with a 102-70 win over Washington College and an 86-62 win over Mary Washington. The team, however, fell in its most recent game - a 77-76 decision to the Bishops of North Carolina Wesleyan. Hampden-Sydney will look to get back in the win column and kick off the ODAC season with a victory.

The Wasps are still looking for their first victory of the season, having fallen in two close games with a 66-60 loss to Covenant and a 71-66 loss at home to Ferrum.

The last time these two teams met at Fleet Gymnasium, the Tigers claimed a 107-68 victory on February 4, 2011.
