GOSHEN, Ind. — A blackout will hit Goshen College's Gunden Gymnasium on Saturday afternoon for Senior Day as the Maple Leaf men's and women's basketball teams host Taylor. Seven women and two men will play the second-to-last regular season home games of their careers, with the women tipping off at 1:00 and the men at 3:00. The seniors will also be recognized between games at approximately 2:30.

Fans are encouraged to wear black clothing, such as the "Black Out" shirt from the Crossroads League's child trafficking awareness night last month, to the contest in order to help create the blackout effect.

Saturday's games are pivotal conference affairs for all four teams involved: all four teams are still alive for Crossroads League tournament positioning, but only Taylor's men have clinched a berth. Goshen's men could finish in any of four spots in the final standings, the smallestsuch range of any team in the building Saturday.

.Both games will also air live on 91.1 The Globe, GC's award-winning campus radio station, and at GoLeafs.net/live.
