SPOKANE, Wash. -- Whitworth University is offering Spokane an early Christmas present with free admission to Saturday's men's basketball game when the 11th-ranked Pirates host Simpson College of Iowa.
The game will tip off at 7:00 p.m. on the Whitworth campus. With students away on Christmas break, Whitworth Director of Athletics sees this as a great opportunity for local basketball fans to experience a Pirate game for the first time.
"This is a chance to share our exciting and talented basketball team with a broader Spokane audience," Leetch said.
General admission for Whitworth games is usually $10 for adults and $5 for seniors/students/children.
Whitworth is coming off of three straight wins in California that extended the Pirates' winning streak to eight in a row. Simpson is making its first-ever trip to Eastern Washington.
