The University of Toledo basketball teams will host “Tricks, Treats and Dunks,” a special season preview on Wednesday, Oct. 29 at Savage Arena at 6:00 p.m.
The evening will begin with trick or treating from 6:00-6:40 p.m. at stations located in the arena concourses. Fans can dress in their Halloween costumes and get treats and prizes. Free schedule posters will be provided for fans to get autographs from UT men's and women's basketball players. Kids will also be able to enjoy fun activities.
At 6:45, the fun moves onto Nichols Court, where a contest for best Halloween costume will be judged. Prizes will be given out to best costumes for both children and UT students. There will also be raffle prizes for both fans and UT students throughout the night.
Following the best costume contest, the 2014-15 UT men's and women's basketball teams will be introduced. The Rockets will participate in a three-point shooting contest that will feature players from both teams as well as UT students. The event will conclude with the men's team's slam-dunk contest.
Fans can enjoy snacks from the concession stands as they watch the action and listen to music from a live DJ.
The UT men's team is coming off a stellar season in 2013-14 in which the Rockets won a school-record 27 games. The Rockets return four starters from last year's team, including three All-MAC players, senior guards Julius Brown (first team) and Justin Drummond (third team), and senior forward J.D. Weatherspoon (honorable mention).
The Rocket women's team returns seven letterwinners from last season's squad, including two-time All-MAC selection senior guard Inma Zanoguera.
The UT Athletic Ticket Office will be open during the event for fans who wish to purchase season tickets or who want more information about tickets. Fans may also call 419-530-GOLD (4653) for more information.
