SU Basketball Programs Welcome All Fans to Attend Special Friday Night Events

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The Susquehanna University Athletic Departments invites all fans to come out and take part in two special events this Friday night when they cheer on their Crusaders, who host Scranton in a Landmark Conference doubleheader.

The night, which gets underway at 5:30 p.m. with the tipoff of the women’s game, marks SU’s annual Orange Crush/Pepsi Day while the women’s team is also conducting its annual Pink Zone event.

The Pepsi event includes free Pepsi beverages and hot dogs for all fans in attendance at both games. Additionally, all fans are encouraged to wear orange clothing in support of an “Orange Crush” of Scranton. Pepsi Beverages Company of Selinsgrove, Pa. will also be handing out free Orange crush t-shirts and other prizes.

Finally, at halftime of the men’s game, preliminary Pepsi winners from earlier in the season will compete for a grand prize during a three-point shootout.

The Pink Zone effort is designed to raise support, awareness and funds in the fight against Breast Cancer. The first 100 people with a Susquehanna ID (which includes students, faculty and staff) will be given a free 2011 Pink Zone t-shirt. Anyone else interested in purchasing a t-shirt will be able to do so for a $15 donation until supplies last.

As usual, admission for adults is $5, while admission for students is $2. SU students, faculty and staff with a proper ID and children ages five and younger are admitted free of charge. The men’s game will follow the women’s game with an approximate start time of 7:30 p.m.
