A Whole Lot of Hoop-la

Your last two chances to see the men’s and women’s basketball teams at home games this regular season: Italian Night and Senior Day. Plus, get an instaprize with a Pace Athletics Instagram contest.

On Wednesday, February 20, the men’s and women’s basketball teams take on Adelphi in a doubleheader at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. As part of the Italian Night, Lucio’s and Frank and Joe’s will sponsor the game and during half-time of the men’s game, take part in the Frank and Joe’s stack off where you’ll try to make one of their classics–the fastest to do so wins a prize. During the women’s half-time, there will be a pepperoni frisbee toss. The CYO Youth team will also scrimmage during half-time of the women’s game.

Then, on Saturday, February 23, we say so long to Senior Setters at the annual Senior Day game, which will recognize both the women’s and men’s basketball seniors in between games and posters will be handed out at the ticket gate. Senior dance team members and cheerleaders will also be recognized during half-time of the men’s game, with the final performances by both groups. At women’s half-time, the CYO Youth team returns for a scrimmage. Play4Kay T-shirts will also be sold throughout the doubleheader to continue to raise funds for the Play4Kay Foundation. Tip off is 1:30 p.m.

Also, beginning on Monday, February 18, Pace students have the opportunity to participate in a new Instaprize program to receive prizes throughout the week. A picture of an envelope will be posted on the Pace Athletics Instagram account on campus. The first student to find the envelope will receive the prize within the envelope as well as information for the upcoming games.
