The Jean Beamer Tip-Off Classic will feature three women’s basketball teams at the Roanoke College Cregger Center this weekend. The two-day event is named for the former Maroon women’s athlete and coach.
Roanoke College will play host to Salisbury in Saturday’s opener, scheduled for 6 pm. On Sunday Salisbury will play Hollins University at 1 pm.
The Maroons opened their season last Friday with a 96-58 win over Mary Baldwin. Freshman Madison Nereu scored a game-high 24 points in her collegiate debut while Rose Sande started the season with a double-double of 10 points and 11 rebounds.
Roanoke was scheduled to host the University of Lynchburg on Wednesday of this week, but results were too late for publication. After Saturday’s game RC is off until Wednesday, November 30, when they play at Ferrum.
