The latest edition of the annual basketball event will once again feature two games: a women's matchup between the Carleton Ravens and the Ottawa Gee-Gees at 6 p.m., followed by the men's contest between the same schools at 8 p.m. The 2013 event marks the third of a six-year renewed agreement between the schools which sees Scotiabank Place continue to host the event through 2016.
