Austin College will celebrate 100 years of basketball competition with a weekend of games and events for alumni and friends on February 12-14.
The weekend events, commemorating both men’s and women’s basketball, will center around intercollegiate Austin College basketball action, with teams taking on SCAC rival Trinity University on February 12 (women at 6 p.m., men at 8 p.m.) and competing with Southwestern University on February 14 (women at 1 p.m., men at 3 p.m.)
Events for alumni include a Friday night post-game gathering and a full schedule of activities on Saturday, February 13, including alumni games and plenty of opportunity to meet with friends, as well as a celebration dinner. A Sunday morning reception and worship service will lead into the final intercollegiate games of the weekend.
“This is a chance for people to visit and reminisce together,” said David Norman, associate director of athletics. “Come to games, see old friends, reconnect with old teammates—an event like this happens only every 100 years!”
