Winston-Salem, NC-This Saturday's home basketball game against Agnes Scott will be huge for 3 reasons. The Spirits are battling for playoff position with the Scotties, and this will be each team's final regular season game. The team will be celebrating 2 seniors, Shamaz Denerson (Atlanta, GA) and Amber Miller (Mebane, NC) during the game. The program will also be raising money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
