Free Admission on New Year's Eve Day

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Whitworth University is offering the Spokane community one final chance for free admission to a men's basketball game in 2012-13 when the 11th-ranked Pirates host Hamline University (Minn.) on New Year's Eve Day.

The game will tip off at 2:00 p.m. Monday afternoon on the Whitworth campus. With students away on Christmas break, first-time Pirate fans can begin their New Year's celebrations with an afternoon in the Whitworth Fieldhouse.

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

Whitworth (9-1) is riding a nine-game winning streak heading into its final regular-season non-conference game. Hamline (4-3) is making its first-ever trip to Eastern Washington.  The Pipers play at Whitman College on Saturday evening.
