Basketball Fan Fest Coming to the Pizzitola Center

Oct. 21, 2008

Providence, R.I - Brown University will hold its Basketball Fan Fest at the Pizzitola Sports Center on Saturday, October 25 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The event is free for fans of all ages.

The Fan Fest will feature the Bears' men's and women's teams and will include 10-minute scrimmages by both. Interactive fan contests, skill demonstrations, great prizes, and free pizza highlight the evening's schedule.

Both of the Bears' hoops teams open their seasons on Friday, November 14th - Coach Jean Burr's women will play at Providence, while Coach Jesse Agel's men open at Rhode Island.

The Pizzitola Center gymnasium has undergone a significant transformation since last season - a brand new floor, two new scoreboards, excellent and energy-efficient new lighting, new bleachers and chairs, and improved speakers - and ticket information for the Bears' 2008-2009 campaign will be available during the Fan Fest.
