Cleveland State University’s intramural basketball leagues resumed action Monday, Jan. 28. The league is set to play games on Monday and Tuesday nights at the school’s recreation center throughout the semester, concluding on Tuesday, March 5.

The Tuesday night league consists of ten teams where games run any time from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. As for Monday night, eight teams registered and games can be played any time from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Five players on each team must be on the court at all times during game play.

The regular season consists of each team playing four games (one game per week) followed with a two-week playoff format. Each game throughout the season will consist of two 20-minute halves with a running clock.

The 2019 spring league will feature some returning participants from a year ago, one of those students being junior Nick Isabella.

Being on a team where he knew just three people last spring forced Isabella to meet new people, which was one thing that he said made the league more enjoyable for him. Becoming more active and involved on campus as a commuter student, along with playing with new students, are some of the things Isabella is looking forward to this semester.

“I’m looking forward to just coming down and doing something at Cleveland State besides attending classes,” the finance major said.

“It was a well-organized league last year and it allowed me to meet new people,” he continued.

For other students, such as junior Jake Agresta, playing in the intramural league will be a new and exciting experience. He explained that having the opportunity to play organized basketball for the first time since high school with some of his close friends is what made him push toward playing in the league. Playing in this league will be something different, but the general business major is ready to compete.

“I’m most looking forward to just getting out there with my friends,” he said. “It’s always a cool experience to be on a team with some close friends even if it is only an intramural league.”
