Tonight our very own Great Falls Explorers will take the court at the Four Seasons Arena in their last pre-season game. Their opponent tonight is the Malmstrom Air Force Base “All-Stars,” who aren’t part of the league but should help the Explorers put on a good show. The Newstalk 1400 site has more information and pictures about the team. Tickets for tonight’s game range from $9 to $25. Also on hand will be the Explorers’ dance team, the Sapphires. Also making an appearance will be the official mascot of the team, Rocky Raccoon, although I’m a bit puzzled over how a raccoon ties in with the “explorer” theme:
UPDATE, Friday @ 10:25 pm: The Explorers blew out the Malmstrom All-Stars – final score was 144 to 65.
