    Actually, Aden was a senior last year and is therefore no longer on the team. Go Cougs!

  • JenkemWSU

    Ehhh, noticed more, Lodwick and Capers were seniors last year too. So yeah, they won’t be playing this year. Nice article dude, get facts straight before up chucking online?

  • goCougs

    I appreciate the effort but as JenkemWSU noted, your facts are a little off. In addition to his notes, Reggie Moore was dismissed from the team a few weeks ago.

    Also, the game is in Kansas City as part of the CBE Classic, not Allen Fieldhouse.
