OLYMPIA, Wash. - Men's basketball hosts cross-town rival St. Martin's University tomorrow night in a 7:30 PM exhibition game. It will be the Geoducks first game, having only scrimmaged so far.

Although the game outcome will not be noted in either teams season record, the rivalry has always been an exciting one for the community.

Evergreen has a lead in the game series with SMU, having won 7 of the 12 games.

Coach Jeff Drinkwine is anxious to see how his newcomers like freshman Van Dallenback-Ouellette (Medford, Ore.) and sophomore Johnny Sarysz (Renton, Wash.) will play side by side with returning standouts like Nathan Menefee and Nick Moore.

The Saints are looking strong this year. St. Martin's played an exhibition game with NCAA Div. I Oregon State University this past weekend, losing in a close 80-76 game.

Evergreen defeated the Saints 97-84 last year at SMU.
