The Minnesota, Crookston athletic department is encouraging all fans to wear white for Friday’s Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) home openers for the men’s and women’s basketball against Minot State University as UMC looks to “white-out” Lysaker Gymnasium. The women’s game will begin at 6 p.m. at Lysaker Gymnasium, while the men will tip off at 8 p.m.
Everyone who wears white to Friday’s game will be entered into a drawing for a free 32-inch LG LCD-TV. Fans are also free to bring their canned goods to Friday’s contest. Anyone who brings canned goods will also be entered into the drawing for a T.V.
White t-shirts can be purchased outside of Lysaker Gymnasium before the game for $10 if you do not already have a white shirt to wear to the game. In addition to being UMC’s “white-out” game, Friday will also serve as Faculty-Staff Appreciation Night, Crookston Youth Basketball Association (CYBA) night and UMC Teambacker night.
