Statesmen host Tartans Saturday
GENEVA, N.Y.—The Hobart College basketball team will host Carnegie Mellon University on Saturday, Dec. 8 in a non-conference contest in Bristol Gymnasium. Tipoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. While admission to Hobart regular season games is free, the Statesmen invite fans to donate non-perishable food items for the Geneva Center of Concern's food pantry. For several seasons, Hobart has hosted an annual food drive during a conference weekend, but this season, the Statesmen are collecting donations at every home game. Fans who can't make it to Bristol Gym can follow the action online with All-Access Video and Live Stats. The game will be broadcast live on WHWS-FM (105.7).
