IUP Men's Basketball Hosts Fourth Annual Golf Outing

Posted on 9/16/2009 8:00:43 PM

The IUP men’s basketball team will hold its fourth annual alumni golf outing on September 18 at Indiana Country Club.

The team will honor Head Coach Rollie Massimino of the NCAA Champion 1985 Villanova Wildcats, and pay tribute to the IUP basketball teams from 1967 to 1970, which had a combined record of 61-12. All proceeds raised from the event go exclusively to athletic scholarships for current and future IUP men's basketball players.

The day begins with registration at 10 a.m., followed by lunch at 11:00. Tee off is at 11:30 with a shamble format. Following golf, cocktails will be served at 4:30, with dinner, auction, and raffle scheduled for 5:30.

The team has been active in its commitment to serve the community it represents, according to Coach Joe Lombardi. Recently, team members participated in the Heart Walk at Indiana Regional Medical Center.

Those interested in the golf outing or engaging the team to participate in a community service event should contact assistant coach Kranthi Senadhi via e-mail (k.senadhi@iup.edu) or by calling 724-357-4449.
