Save the Date: Alumni Game

HoopFest Alumni Game Final

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!

    Will there be a cost to attend? What is hopfest?

    • says

      Great questions! There will be a slight cost that will be donated to local charity, which we are still finalizing exact pricing. And, HOPFEST at Hoopfest is the beer garden portion that will be tied to the event. Thanks!

    You could also invite past Hoopfest winners. From all the open divisions.

      You’re reading our mind! 🙂 We’re hoping to get to that level in future years. That’s why we’re really trying to brand this The Alumni Game, so that we’re open to bring Alumni of all sorts. Thanks for your comment!
