The Albany State University Lady Rams will be in the national spotlight when they take on the Fort Valley State University Lady Wildcats in SIAC basketball action on Saturday. The Lady Rams’ game will be televised live at noon by the CBS College Sports Network from ASU’s HPER Gymnasium.
“We are excited to have our SIAC women’s teams play in front of a national audience,” said Dr. Joshua W. Murfree, ASU’s athletics director. “This is an excellent opportunity for the nation to see the best of women’s basketball action and expose our campuses.”
