Redhawks Men's Basketball- What You Need to Know!
Posted by Amanda Kelly on Monday, October 31, 2011 at 1:41 PM PDT
Change is the key word when profiling the 2011-12 Seattle University men’s basketball team. Eight newcomers have transformed the roster into a much taller, more athletic list – including 10 players at 6-foot 5 or better, including four at 6-8 or taller. Yet, even with the change, the team boasts a great deal of experience, with nine upperclassmen on the 14-man roster.
This year, we are featuring great pre-game rallies at 7 important push games, including this Saturday, November 19 against San Francisco. Free entrance with your ticket!
All rallies will feature great food, prizes, programs and a chance to show your Redhawk pride! Home game pre-game rallies will be an hour before tip-off in Club Live inside KeyArena. Full list of pre-game rallies.
