5, 4, 3, 2, 1…..
When the clock strikes midnight tonight, well, actually 10:30 p.m., the Aquinas Saints will kick off their men’s and women’s basketball seasons with their second annual Saints Slam, a Hawaiian-themed event for the teams and students, as well as faculty, staff, alumni, fans and the media.
The Detroit Pistons Extreme Team will be in attendance to wow the crowd when festivities get going around 11 p.m. Those activities include “various athletic and entertainment activities, including competitions with AQ basketball players and students, a dunk contest, (and) performances from the Saints cheer and dance teams”.
Get to the Sturrus Center early to be one of the first 250 guests who will receive a Saints Slam t-shirt. Fans are encouraged to wear their favorite Hawaiian-themed outfits to the “Bringin’ The Heat” event.
One lucky student in attendance will win the grand prize raffle of $599 towards books for their studies.
Saints Slam is free and open to all Aquinas students, fans, and supporters.
