Men’s Basketball to Host Alumni Game on Saturday
BRISTOL, Tenn. – Reigning Coach of the Year George Pitts and the defending Conference Carolinas Regular Season Champion Tornado men's basketball team invite students, faculty, staff, and the Tri-Cities community to its annual Alumni Game. The contest will host Tornado players from yesteryear to take on the 2012-13 squad in a friendly exhibition on Saturday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. to be played in the Student Center Complex.
Players from last year's NCAA Tournament team as well as those from previous eras of Tornado basketball will join together for a scrimmage to test what team will triumph, that with age or those without as many miles on the tires. Join them and cheer on either team, but regardless, a Tornado team will win!
The scrimmage precedes the Tornado's first exhibition contest of the 2012-13 season, a rematch between state-line rival Virginia Intermont College. King will play the Cobras inside the Cobra's Den (Bristol, Va.) on Tuesday, Oct. 30 with a 7 p.m. tipoff.
