Vikings women's basketball gains victory over Western Michigan

Due to the NBA lockout occurring, the Vikings men’s basketball coaches and players are looking forward to more fan support in larger numbers. Many fans are wondering if they will be able to see their favorite players on the court. It’s a shame to turn on the TV and wonder whether or not we’ll have the opportunity to see a Cavs game this year.

The question is, will more people show up for CSU games since they aren’t able to watch the NBA games?
