The Humboldt State men’s and women’s basketball teams will host a tip-off event for fans on Monday evening, before they officially begin the new season.
The action will include an introduction to both teams, a 3-point shooting contest, a dunk competition and a scrimmage.
This will be followed by an opportunity for the crowd to get involved and win prizes as well as some HSU spirit festivities.
Arena doors will open at 6 pm, with the celebration beginning at 6:30 pm.
Admission is free and open to the public, and a limited number of special edition t-shirts will be available for Humboldt State students.
In addition to the t-shirts, other prizes and giveaways will include gift cards to local businesses, including the official Humboldt State Lumberjack SIDELINE merchandise store, and tickets to the Harlem Globetrotters game at HSU on January 18th.
All fans will be required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status.
Both teams will also play exhibition games this weekend, with the women hosting Southern Oregon on Friday at 5 p.m., and the men playing their annual Green and Gold Scrimmage on Saturday at 1 p.m.
