SAVE THE DATE: The ALUMNI GAME presented by Hoopfest

We're excited to announce that the ALUMNI GAME is back! Be here the Friday of Hoopfest weekend (June 23) at the Spokane Convention Center. This event involves former men's college basketball players competing against each other to tip off Hoopfest 2017. Tickets are on sale now, but hurry... They're going fast!

Last year, the ALUMNI GAME presented by Hoopfest, was such an overwhelming success that we had to up our game. Former players and fans alike had such an awesome time at the inaugural event that we knew we had to bring it back!

“One of the unintentional results of last year’s game was that it was really competitive,” says Hoopfest Executive Director, Matt Santangelo. “We mixed generations and alumni groups — but it shouldn’t have come as a surprise — it was nice how good the quality of basketball was. It wasn’t just an all-star game or exhibition game.”

The game included a skills challenge, 3-point competition and a slam dunk exhibition to entertain our Hoopfesters at halftime. In addition to the game, there was FanFest presented by Washington Trust Bank, autograph/photo opportunities and HOPFEST @ Hoopfest, your official “Fifth Quarter” headquarters during the ALUMNI GAME, where local craft beer dispensers showed off their brews.

All of these elements will be back, but the 2nd Annual ALUMNI GAME called for a twist that would elevate the event.

This year, the game will not only feature former Gonzaga University players, but former University of Washington players as well. A friendly rivalry should be expected from the intrastate teams. And we are excited to see the ALUMNI GAME grow from last year’s success.

ALUMNI GAME GUvsUW

“We want it to be competitive,” Santangelo says. “What a better way to up that ante than to involve a rival school. To engage a whole new alumni base- another group of players- and see their willingness to come to Spokane, is really, really exciting.”

We can’t take all the credit. Like a true point guard, Jeremy Pargo threw us an assist that we knew could be a potential slam dunk!

“When the idea of the ALUMNI GAME was kicked off, it was really spearheaded by Dan Dickau and Jeremy Pargo,” Santangelo said. “Pargo always had the vision to go GU vs. UW; he wanted it. It was his idea that sparked the action. The peak of that rivalry was Pargo’s years in school. Now that they are finally back on each other’s schedule, it seemed like timing was good to reignite this rivalry.”

Join us for another entertaining ALUMNI GAME! Tickets are now available for $20 at TicketsWest.com. Make sure you snag your tickets early – last year, we sold out quickly.

Help us tipoff the Best Basketball Weekend on Earth while seeing former local hoopers take to the hardwood!
