Second annual ALUMNI GAME will feature Bulldogs and Huskies!

After the Gonzaga men’s basketball team reached the NCAA National Championship this past season, Hoopfest knew it had to bring THE ALUMNI GAME back for its second year! And how better to commemorate the 2016-2017 season than to cheer on the players who helped build the Zag foundation?

On Friday, June 23, at 7pm in the Spokane Convention Center, Gonzaga alums will take on past Washington Huskies in the second annual Hoopfest ALUMNI GAME battle you will not want to miss!


This year, Hoopfest is reigniting the Bulldog vs. Husky rivalry and what better way to do so than with players who were around when the rivalry began?

Also, don’t forget to check out the other two exciting events happening at the Hoopfest ALUMNI GAME on the Friday before the Best Basketball Weekend on Earth! With both FANFEST presented by Washington Trust Bank and HOPFEST @ Hoopfest, there are activities available for all ages to enjoy!

“Last year, THE ALUMNI GAME was a fun way to tip-off Hoopfest and welcome former Gonzaga favorites back to Spokane,” expresses Bailee Neyland, Hoopfest’s Director of Brand Strategy and Business Development. “With the revival of Gonzaga vs. U-Dub, the game will once again be competitive and entertaining for all Hoopfesters. You won’t want to miss out!”

Don’t forget to purchase your $20 tickets to THE ALUMNI GAME now on, as last year the tickets went fast. We want you to be there to help us kick off the largest 3on3 basketball tournament in the world!

We hope to see you there ready to root on your favorite team from the region! Buy your tickets today!
