Free Admission at Basketball on Black Friday

It will be a true Black Friday special on Friday afternoon at the Whitworth Fieldhouse when the 14th-ranked Pirates host University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in a non-conference men's basketball game.

The game will tip off at 3:00 p.m. on the Whitworth campus.  With most students away on break, Whitworth Director of Athletics sees this as a great opportunity for local basketball fans to experience a Pirate game for the first time.

"It will be a fun way for a family to end their day out shopping," Leetch said.

General admission for Whitworth games is usually $10 for adults and $5 for seniors/students/children.

Whitworth is coming off of a hard-fought 70-65 loss to 11th-ranked St. Thomas (Minn.) in its season opener last Saturday.  Meanwhile the UMHB Crusaders rolled to a season-opening 73-50 win over Southwestern (Texas) on Tuesday night.
