Alumni Spirit Night for Schreiner basketball

The Schreiner Former Students Association is calling for local alumni and former students to attend the men’s and women’s basketball games on Thursday, Jan. 14 and cheer for the home team. The women’s game starts at 5:30 p.m., the men’s at 7:30 p.m. in the Edington Gym on the Schreiner University campus. The men’s team is 2-0 in 2010 and in the hunt for a playoff berth.

At halftime at both games, two spectators will be chosen to attempt a basket from mid court. If successful, the winner will receive a $250 check from Wing King, which is sponsoring this season-long competition. There also is a $10 “Wing Buck” consolation prize.

“My goal for these events is to get more alumni out to see firsthand the great effort our student athletes are putting out there each game and to show them that this is great entertainment as well,” Paul Camfield, associate director of alumni relations and director of SFSA, said. “We hope once they come to a game they’ll tell a few friends and it will grow from there.”
