COMMERCE, Texas -- A&M-Commerce fans are invited to help us pack the Field House this Wednesday, February 6, as both the Lion men and women have crucial Lone Star Conference games against longtime rival Abilene Christian at the Field House. The Lion women tip off against the Wildcats at 5:30 p.m., followed by the men at approximately 7:30 p.m. (25 minutes following the conclusion of the women's game).
Wednesday's games mark possibly the final showdown ever between A&M-Commerce and Abilene Christian as the Wildcats will make the jump to Division I next season. The men have squared off against Abilene Christian for over 60 years, while the women's rivalry with the Wildcats extends back over 30 seasons.
