At halftime, Loveland honored fellow student¬†Cam Louder¬†who has recently undergone an¬†arduous,¬†5-hour surgery in a St. Paul, Minnesota hospital. Cam, the enthusiastic Tiger fan, would normally be at the home opener, however since he couldn’t be, the Tiger cheerleaders led fans in¬†chants of, “When I say Cam, you say Louder. We say get, you say better.” Cam will stay in Minnesota for at least three¬†more weeks. The band also played Eye of the Tiger as a get well message for Cam. Cheerleader, Tess Locasto and Loveland Magazine organized the get well message.

Towards¬†the end of the game, Loveland’s lead shrank, with a final victory of¬†49-43. Already, Loveland basketball is off to a strong start including¬†all wins in womens basketball. Will the teams live up to their expectations?
