Basketball Announces Annual Pepsi Day

SELINSGROVE, Pa. - The Susquehanna University Athletic Department has announced “Orange Crush”/Pepsi Day 2012 will take place Saturday, Feb. 11 in conjunction with a home men's and women's Landmark Conference doubleheader. Both teams will take on Catholic with the women's game set to start at 2 p.m., followed by the men’s game at approximately 4 p.m.

As usual, admission for adults is $5, while admission for students is $2. Susquehanna students, faculty and staff (with proper ID) and children ages five and younger are admitted free of charge. Free Pepsi beverages and hot dogs are available for all fans at the games. Weis Markets is providing the hot dogs and buns.

Additionally, all fans are encouraged to wear orange clothing in support of an “Orange Crush” of Catholic. In a partnership with that, The Pepsi Beverages Company of Selinsgrove, Pa., and Susquehanna cheerleaders will be handing out free tee shirts and other prizes.

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 contest invites back a number of first-round winners to compete for the grand prize, which has not yet been revealed.

Any and all people are eligible to win the preliminary soda-pop prizes, courtesy of Pepsi/Weis Markets.

Contestants have been chosen at random and have attempted to make shots from a number of locations in SU's Orlando W. Houts Gymnasium in Selinsgrove during halftimes of Crusaders basketball games.
