Students Will Have Opportunity To Win $100 At FSU's League Doubleheaders

Ferris State University students will have an opportunity to win cash at each Bulldog basketball doubleheader the rest of the season.

Basketball Logo The FSU Athletics Department will give away a $100 certificate at each of the Bulldogs’ 11 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) men’s and women’s doubleheaders this campaign, beginning with this Saturday’s (Dec. 13) league twin bill versus Hillsdale at Jim Wink Arena.

In order to win the prize on a given day, students must be in attendance prior to halftime of the women’s basketball contest. A raffle drawing will be held to determine the winner in the second half of the men’s game.

Besides the $100 drawing, a number of other special events will take place at selected league doubleheaders this year.

FSU will hold a “Fill The Wink” promotion in conjunction with its first doubleheader of the second semester when archrival Grand Valley State visits Wink Arena on Monday, Jan. 12.

On Saturday, Jan. 17, it will be “College Game Day” as the Bulldogs entertain the Ashland Eagles in an afternoon twin bill starting at 12 p.m. (EST). The men’s game will follow at 2 p.m. with the FSU hockey team hosting the Ohio State Buckeyes later that day at 5:05 p.m. As part of the events, a bean bag toss tournament will be held in the multipurpose room of the facility and be hosted in conjunction with Ferris Student Government.

A special “Spelling Bee” event will take place during the Michigan Tech games on Feb. 12 with a “Couples Contest” planned for the Northern Michigan matchup on Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14). Finally, Ferris will help promote Breast Cancer Awareness with “Pink Zone Day” for the Bulldogs’ outing with Saginaw Valley State (Feb. 19).

FSU students are encouraged to come out and support the Bulldog basketball teams. All students are admitted free to regular-season contests with their student identification cards.
