Whitworth University has added one more game to its 2018-19 men's basketball schedule, but this date is about more than competition.
The Pirates will host a team of Whitworth Alumni on Sunday, December 16th at 1:00 pm in the Whitworth Fieldhouse. Admission will be free.
The men's basketball team has played an alumni game almost every season since 2001.
"The alumni game has become a family tradition for us here at Whitworth," said head coach Matt Logie. "Not only do we get to reconnect with many of our alums and their families, but our current players get a chance to compete against some of the best players Division III has had to offer in recent years. It is a great way to celebrate our mantra that 'Tradition Never Graduates' and bring our entire basketball family together. "
Following the game there will be a reception for alumni and families in the Whitworth Fieldhouse.
