Hometown heroes ready to shine at Paint the Meridian Red

The upcoming showdown between the Brock Badgers and McMaster Marauders men’s and women’s basketball teams is poised to transform the Meridian Centre into a sea of red on Saturday, Nov. 25.

Paint the Meridian Red transcends the basketball court; it’s a celebration of community and hometown pride, according to Brock women’s basketball head coach, Mike Rao.

Paint the Meridian Red will feature a group of student-athletes hailing from various corners of the Niagara region: Shailah Adams from Welland; Madalyn Weinert, Brookelyn Keltos, Jamie Addy, Allison Addy and Anthony Heyes representing St. Catharines; Vienna Vercesi from Niagara Falls; and Ilijana Vukovic and Aleksija Vukovic from Grimsby.

The Badgers haven’t hosted Paint the Meridian Red since 2020

The women’s game will tip off at 6 p.m. with the men following at 8 p.m. Tickets are available on Ticketmaster.ca
