Can’t get enough of the largest 3on3 outdoor basketball tournament in the world? Well, good news: Hoopfest is excited to announce that the 2nd annual ALUMNI GAME will be happening the Friday of Hoopfest Week at the Spokane Convention Center! Come watch former men’s college basketball players compete against each other to tip off the Best Basketball Weekend on Earth. There will also be a skills challenge, three point competition and slam dunk contest to entertain our Hoopfesters.
Last year, the inaugural ALUMNI GAME was a slam dunk! Former Gonzaga University Men’s Basketball players and their fans collectively expressed how much fun they had, and how they hoped we’d bring it back for Hoopfest 2017… We agreed!
“The Zag Family is fantastic,” expresses Matt Santangelo, Hoopfest’s Executive Director and member of Team (Jeremy) Pargo from last year’s ALUMNI GAME. “Truly, it’s a band of brothers that have so much in common over the years; experiences, losses and (more often) wins! It is just so rewarding to know you can call on a fellow Zag and they all respond with a, ‘Yes, how can I help?’ The ALUMNI GAME is a unique opportunity to get all of us together to celebrate our story. It was so much fun last year, we are going to do it again this year!”
This event is full of activities for all ages, including autograph/photo opportunities and local craft beers. If you need a break from the hoop action, check out HOPFEST @ Hoopfest, your Official “5th Quarter” Headquarters during the ALUMNI GAME.
While we’re just as excited for this event as our Hoopfesters, the teams and rosters for this year’s ALUMNI GAME will be announced soon, so stay tuned. If you’re wanting to join us for another ALUMNI GAME showdown, tickets will be available for $20 at TicketsWest starting in June. Make sure you snag your tickets early – last year, we sold out. We’re looking forward to seeing another large crowd of hoop lovers for this exciting event happening Friday, June 23!
