Local community members, including Penn State alumni and friends, are invited to be courtside for a special Winter White Out event between the Penn State Lehigh Valley (PSU-LV) women’s and men’s basketball games at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26, at Stabler Arena in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The fun starts with the women’s game at 5:30 p.m. and continues with the men’s game starting at 7:30 p.m. Both teams are playing Penn State Fayette.
“We hope people come out to show their Penn State pride while enjoying a unique family-friendly courtside experience between the games,” said Rich Fatzinger, athletic director at Penn State Lehigh Valley. “We are excited to have local youth associations play mini games at the half-times of each game, which gives young players a fun experience playing in a big arena.”
The courtside tailgate, hosted by Penn State Lehigh Valley, will feature a dinner buffet, multiple chances to win Penn State prizes, an inflatable moon bounce and basketball hoop for kids to enjoy during breaks and at halftime, and photos with the Nittany Lion mascot. The PSU-LV women’s team is coached by the 2017 PSUAC Coach of the Year Lorie Khalil, head coach, Vernon J. Mobley, assistant coach, and Andrea Watkins, assistant coach. The PSU-LV men’s team is coached by Tom Mosser, head coach, and Jim Roth, assistant coach.
Admission to the games is free. Tickets for the catered courtside event cost $20 for adults; $10 for children ages 2 to 12; and $10 for Penn State Lehigh Valley students. Space is limited; the first 50 people who register and submit payment will receive a free Winter White Out T-shirt. PSU-LV students will have the chance to win a special prize.
