New to Hoopfest 2016 is The Alumni Game, taking place on the Friday of Hoopfest week at the Spokane Convention Center. The inaugural event involves former Gonzaga University Men’s Basketball players competing against each other to tip off the Best Basketball Weekend on Earth. Activities will include a skills challenge, three point contest and slam dunk contest.
The Alumni Game was spearheaded by three former Gonzaga point guards, Matt Santangelo (‘96-’00), Dan Dickau (‘00-’02) and Jeremy Pargo (‘05-’09). The hope is that this event grows to include alums from other regional universities in future years.
This event is full of activities for all ages, including a FanFest, autograph/photo opportunities and local craft beer. Also stick around after the game and take advantage of HOPFEST at Hoopfest, the official after party. Make sure you don’t miss out on this exciting inaugural event Friday, June 24th!
