FERRUM - Ferrum College’s men’s basketball team finishes regular-season play today at home against Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) foe Virginia Wesleyan University.
Tip off at William P. Swartz Gymnasium is 5 p.m.
The reason why today’s contest is the regular-season finale is because a scheduled game in Greensboro, N.C. against league rival Guilford College has been canceled.
The Quakers canceled each of their last five games starting with Friday night’s home game against the University of Lynchburg.
Guilford also canceled today’s game at Bridgewater College and a Saturday, Feb. 27 visit to Shenandoah University.
All four of the canceled games were ODAC contests.
The last game Guilford played was its Tuesday, Feb. 16 ODAC contest at home against Roanoke College, won by the Maroons, 60-57.
Earlier this season, Guilford league games against Washington and Lee University and Virginia Wesleyan were postponed and conference contests against Hampden-Sydney College, Eastern Mennonite University and Randolph-Macon College were canceled.
Guilford’s record is 2-1 - the Quakers defeated Randolph College, 80-60, and Emory & Henry College, 85-76.
Ferrum comes into today’s game with a 6-4 (5-3 in the ODAC) record.
The Panthers are coming off Friday night’s 81-78 home-court victory over Emory & Henry.
Ferrum is 5-1 in its last six games.
Virginia Wesleyan, last year’s ODAC runner-up, lost to Randolph-Macon in the championship game of the conference’s postseason tournament.
En route to the title game, the Marlins defeated the Panthers in the quarterfinals.
