Gold Rush at Cedarville?

January 30, 2012

On Saturday night I attended the Cedarville men's basketball game. If you look at the picture I posted here the gym was packed. The men's team played Urbana and came out with a win of 69-49.

Basketball games at Cedarville are a huge deal and the gym gets packed out every time there is a game. They are also a lot of fun. On the left side of the picture you can see the student section. It has a ton of students and it is filled with a lot of gold. We often do a "Gold Rush" and fill the whole gym with gold t-shirts. It is awesome. This particular game was not one but still you can see a lot of gold.

Cedarville games are also a great time to hang out with friends and enjoy getting to know people. I really enjoy this aspect about basketball games. Many people go to games with friends or halls as a fun event.

There are also a lot of theme games at Cedarville. In the past there has been a group of guys that would dress up in a theme like Braveheart, business men, lumberjacks, etc, and cheer on the team. It is always a sight to see, plus it amps up the crowd to cheer louder.

If you haven't had the opportunity to experience a basketball game at Cedarville, then come and visit. They are a ton of fun. I know that I was able to go to a game before I was a student at Cedarville and it showed me a little bit of the community here on campus. This is yet another one of the reasons that I love to attend Cedarville University.
