January 17, 2011Tweet
VESTAL, N.Y.—The Binghamton University Athletics Department and Alumni Association are sponsoring Winter Madness 2011 on Saturday, Jan. 29. The BU women’s basketball team will tip off at 3 p.m. vs. the University of Maine Black Bears at the Events Center, followed by the men’s team taking on Maine at 7 p.m. The first 1,500 fans in attendance at the men’s game will receive a Bearcats Silly Bandz and a team from Gary’s U-Pull It will be on hand collecting food for CHOW. Between games, an indoor tailgate party will take place - starting at 4:30 p.m. - in the West Gym. Alumni and their families are invited to attend one or both basketball games, plus the indoor tailgate.
The party offers a barbecue buffet, “dollar menu” concession items, a tailgate bar, performances by Binghamton University spirit squads, appearances by BU coaches and athletes, entertainment by Jared Campbell and Steve Max (aka Simon Sez), children’s games, giveaways and more. Local State Farm Insurance agents Jim Rollo and John Paulin, who are both BU graduates, will raffle off the grand prize of an Amazon Kindle.
The registration deadline is Friday, Jan. 21. Admission to the indoor tailgate is free; however, registration is required. To find details on ticket and food pricing, as well as register online, visit the Winter Madness website at buwintermadness.com.
