NCAA Bengals to take on KPU Eagles in men's hoops

(Metro Vancouver, BC) The KPU Eagles men’s basketball team will be kicking off their 2010-11 campaign with a match-up against NCAA Division I Idaho State University (ISU) Bengals. The team from ISU is travelling through Metro Vancouver and KPU is their second stop on the tour.

"This is a great opportunity," says head coach Bernie Love. "We have a really great line-up for this year’s team, so we are excited to have the chance to test our skills against a Division I school."

The feature match will take place at the KPU Gymnasium in Surrey on August 18th, 2010. Tip-off is at 7:00pm and tickets will be sold in advance: $10 for adults, $6 for kids under 12. Space is limited. Tickets can be purchased in-person at the Department of Athletics and Recreation, Surrey campus, or by phone at 604.599.2980. All proceeds will help support the men's basketball team as they begin their 2010-11 season in the BC Colleges Athletic Association.

KPU's varsity athletics teams are the KPU Eagles. In basketball, soccer, badminton and golf, they compete in national intercollegiate leagues. For more information about the KPU Eagles or view live webcast, visit or follow the Eagles on Twitter: KwantlenEagles
