Athletes for Athletes - Basketball

The Student Athlete Advisory Committee will be hosting their first Athlete for Athletes event of the winter season on Tuesday, December 3 when the  basketball teams take on Houghton.

The Lady Pioneers and Lady Highlanders tip off at 6 p.m. while the men's contest follows at 8 p.m.

The sport management students will be hosting an event "Batte of the Boondocks" in conjunction with the game.  They will be holding a raffle and giving prizes including a Stevie Johnson autographed poster and a Applebee's gift card.

The sport management students also encourage fans to wear white and to bring a canned food item to be donated to a local pantry.  The YMCA biddie basketball players will also be performing a halftime routine.

The doubleheader will be the first home action of the 2013-14 season for the Pioneers and the first ever NCAA DIII basketball games inside the Orvis Activities Center.
