With that in mind, first-year men’s coach Scott Garson, women’s basketball coach Reagan Rossi and their respective teams will host “Meet the Yotes Night,” a basketball tipoff party set to begin at 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29 inside the J.A. Albertson Activities Center on the C of I campus in Caldwell.
