GOG 2012-13 #08: December Break

The fall semester has come to an end which means plenty of time for practice, practice, and more practice! Both teams have plenty of things to work on and if ever there is a time when we'll see a big jump in quality play this will be it. The men face off against Lipscomb and a solid Marshall team while the women hit the road to play Pepperdine and UC Santa Barbara before returning home to play Alcorn State.

Tentative Upcoming GOG schedule:
