Basketball Teams Set to Open Seasons in Kovalchick

Posted on 10/5/2011 2:14:52 PM

The IUP men’s and women’s basketball teams will open up their 2011–2012 regular seasons on Saturday, November 12, at the brand-new Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex. The women will tip at 2:00 p.m. against Goldey-Beacom, while the men are scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start against Seton Hill.

T-shirts will be given out at each game, courtesy of IUP’s Student Co-Op Association. The first 500 through the door at the women’s game will receive a crimson shirt, while the first 4,000 that night at the men’s contest will receive a white t-shirt as the Crimson Hawks hope to “White Out” the Kovalchick Complex in the home opener.

In either case, fans are encouraged to wear their crimson to the women’s game and white to the men’s game to show support for the Crimson Hawks as they open the 2011–2012 season.

Both teams are coming off of postseason appearances, with the women advancing to the PSAC quarterfinals and the men making it to the Atlantic Regional championship.

Tickets for both games will be available at Kovalchick Complex
