The Golden Griffin men’s basketball team plays hosts to MAAC counterpart Rider University tonight (February 9) at 7 p.m. in the Koessler Athletic Center.  It’s Pepsi Night with free Pepsi Max available to fans attending the contest.

In addition to the free beverage, Pepsi t-shirts will be tossed into the crowd and a group of fans will win a pizza from Just Pizza.
