The Central Connecticut men's basketball team host Robert Morris on Saturday, Feb. 18, in an important Northeast Conference matchup. The Blue Devils are currently behind the Colonials for the final spot in the NEC Tournament.
The CCSU volleyball and football teams will be collecting donated school supplies at the doubleheader on Feb. 18, for Smalley Academy in New Britain. Fans are encouraged to bring schools supplies to donate, which will be collected in the lobby at the entrance to Detrick Gymnasium.
At halftime, the Interval House CT and Men Make a Difference celebrity basketball game will be played. The game is meant to help spread awareness of domestic violence. State and local civic leaders will be in attendance to participate in the game.
CCSU returns home after playing its previous three games on the road. Since a 54-52 win at Mount St. Mary's, the Blue Devils have dropped their last three games, but are still in the hunt for the final Northeast Conference tournament berth.
Robert Morris fell at Bryant on Thursday night. The Colonials are currently in possession of the final spot in the NEC Tournament with a 6-9 league mark. The Blue Devils need to win their final three games and have the Colonials lose their final three to move into the postseason.
Tickets for CCSU home games can be purchased at CCSUTickets.com or at the box office upon entry to Kaiser Hall and Detrick Gymnasium. Admission for all CCSU students, faculty and staff is free of charge with a valid Blue Chip card.

Jones swatted a career-high six shots against SHU on Saturday. In doing so, he became the first CCSU player with 5+ blocks in a game since Brandon Peel had six at Saint Francis U on February 6, 2016.
