In addition to the games being streamed online, tonight’s game is a part of Code Cranberry, an initiative designed to express a unified show of support among varsity athletes at Rider.
Furthermore, Rider University and its fans will be celebrating Pink Day as a part of Breast Cancer Awareness. Coaches and players will don pink gear in support of cancer research awareness.
