DENVER – Friday's basketball doubleheader against SCAC conference foe Texas Lutheran has been designated as a White Out. Select fans who arrive early will get a free Johnson & Wales rally towel.
Coming off consecutive wins over the weekend in Dallas, the JWU Denver women's team will kick things off at the Wildcat Center at 5:30 p.m. The Wildcat men's team then tips at 7:30 p.m. in a key late-season contest against the first-place Bulldogs. A win could put JWU within a half-game of first place in the conference standings.
In addition to wearing white, fans are encouraged to bring spare change as part of the SCAC's Change For The Better campaign, a contest to see which member school can raise the most money for charity. Members of JWU's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will be on hand collecting donations during games Friday and throughout Saturday's doubleheader vs. Southwestern (4/6 p.m.).
All the money raised throughout the weekend will be donated to Special Olympics of Colorado. As a newcomer to the SCAC, help JWU make a great first impression on its fellow league members!
