There is nothing like a great college inner-city battle in basketball. And just as such will take place on Wednesday night, November 6th when the Concordia Cavaliers of the Cascade Collegiate Conference travel to Multnomah University to meet the Lions with a tip-off at 7:00 p.m
The game will feature coaches that are two great friends. "I have great respect for Coach Bickley at Multnomah and what he has been able to do with his program. He fully understands his players, how to place them in a position to succeed and is constant in his efforts," says Concordia head coach Brad Barbarick.
It is mutual respect from Coach Bickley. "We are really looking forward to playing Concordia and Coach Barbarick. His 20 years at Concordia have been both successful on the floor and in the classroom and it is an honor to call him my friend."
This will be one of the toughest opponents Multnomah will play all year, as Concordia is talented, deep and is led by all-american Adam Herman.
For Coach Bickley, the game plan is simple. "Even though we are playing up, we do not want to get away from Multnomah University basketball. We need proper spacing and getting up our 3-point game, which is the strength of our game. This will be a challenge, but challenges in November is exactly what will make us a better team in March."
A huge crowd is expected at Multnomah, 8435 NE Glisan and if you are a fan of basketball, you should be part of that crowd. And once again, a great place to watch a game and the parking is always free.
