Wolves Release 2014-15 Hoop Schedule....Drinks Named Captain

May 29, 2014

Cheyney University Men's Basketball Coach Dominique Stephens has announced that Mike Drinks will be the captain of the Wolves 2014-15 squad.  The University has also released the 2014-15 men's basketball schedule.

Drinks will be a senior next year.  He netted a career high 16 points in a conference loss to Lock Haven during the 2013-14 season.  At the Annual All-Sports Banquet, Drinks was awarded the teams' sportsmanship award.  Drinks is a native of Philadelphia and a graduate of Delaware Valley Charter High School.  His major is Recreation and Leisure Management.

The 2014-15 schedule features home and away contests against the other eight schools in the PSAC East (Bloomsburg, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Kutztown, Millersville, Shippensburg, West Chester and East Stroudsburg).  Through a random draw, the Wolves will also battle six schools from the PSAC West.  Cheyney will play Gannon, Clarion and UPJ at home while traveling to Edinboro, Mercyhurst and IUP on the road.

The non-conference portion of the schedule features the Annual Battle of the Firsts.  Cheyney will host Lincoln in a rare Saturday night double header with the women's teams tipping off at 6:00 pm followed by the men.  The other non-league home contest will feature a tilt against the University of the Sciences.  The Wolves will travel to Virginia State and Bowie and open the season at the West Virginia State Tournament.  Opponents for the season opening tournament will be announced later this summer as will the game times for the away contests.
