Green & White Scrimmage Set for Oct. 17


Sept. 26, 2013

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Cam Henderson Center will host a night of basketball on Thursday, Oct. 17 with the Marshall men's and women's team participating in a green & white scrimmage.

It will be the first opportunity for fans to pick up their season tickets and ask about tickets if they haven't already purchased them. The doors will open at 4:30 p.m. and admission is free for those who pick up their season tickets at that time. All season tickets not picked up at that time will be mailed out.

The night will begin at 5:30 p.m. with the women doing drills and skill work before participating in an intrasquad scrimmage. The men will take the court at 7 p.m. and go through a similar routine before a scrimmage. Certified officials will be used for the scrimmage.

At halftime of the men's scrimmage, one lucky student will have a chance to win a new car. Herd men's coach Tom Herrion will draw the name of a student who will take a shot from half court.

Not all fans will shoot for a new car, but most will take home a Marshall souvenir piece.

Students are free with a valid MU ID. All other tickets are $5.
