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
