Ewing, NJ… The College of New Jersey’s department of athletics will
honor the 31 student-athletes that combined to earn 46 All-America
citations last year while competing for The College.  TCNJ will honor
these individuals in conjunction with the Lions’ home basketball double
header contest with Rutgers University-Newark in Packer Hall on
Saturday, December 8. The games are set for a 1 p.m. tip for the women
and the men’s contest follows at 3 p.m. and the individuals will be
honored at the halftime of the men’s contest at approximately 3:45 p.m.
that day.

The event was originally scheduled for a home football game in October,
but heavy rains forced the cancellation of the event. TCNJ is asking all

3:15 p.m.
