The Morrisville State College Athletics Department invites all to take part in the 26th Annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) program when the Mustangs men’s & women’s basketball teams host fellow NEAC conference member Gallaudet University in a doubleheader on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 1 and 3 p.m. in the John W.
