Tailgate and Dollar Day for Saturday home games

By | Alumni, Athletics | No Comments

The Delta State Alumni Association is teaming up with the Left Field Crew to tailgate this Saturday, Feb. 1 before the home basketball games between Delta State and the University of Alabama at Huntsville. The Alumni Association tent will be set up in front of the Walter Sillers Coliseum at 12:30 p.m. for fans to drop by for a visit and to grab a snack. The Alumni Association will be handing out pompoms to guests and anyone who brings a prospective student will receive a special gift.

The women’s game will tip off at 2 p.m., and the men’s basketball team follows at 4 p.m. The Statesmen and Lady Statesmen are both performing at high levels. The men’s team is 16-2 overall and 9-1 in conference play, while the women are 14-2 overall and 9-1 in conference play.

The Delta State University Athletic Department will also host Dollar Day on Saturday. Tickets for the games will be $1 and fans can enjoy $1 hot dogs, popcorn and drinks. The Delta State Student-Athlete Advisory Committee will host its annual silent auction featuring items such as lunch with a football player, golf hats, sweatshirts, handmade crafts and more. Bidding will open at tipoff of the women’s game and will close at the halftime of the men’s game.

CLEVELAND, Miss. – Winter Storm Leon reared its ugly head this week depositing freezing rain and snow across much of the deep south.  With snow and ice accumulations hampering travel in and out of parts of Alabama and Mississippi, Delta State University director of athletics Ronnie Mayers announced that Thurday’s men’s and women’s basketball games have been moved to Monday, Feb. 3 with tipoff times set for 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.  

“After consulting with the administration at the University of West Alabama, we knew that they would have a hard time getting out of Livingston today,” Mayers said.  “We always want to err on the side of caution when we are talking about student-athlete safety. We hope everyone will be able to adjust their schedules and come support the Statesmen and Lady Statesmen on Monday night.”

Saturday’s schedule versus the University of Alabama in Huntsville has not been affected.  The No. 11 ranked Lady Statesmen (14-2, 9-1 GSC) tipoff versus the Lady Chargers at 2 p.m. followed by the No. 15 ranked Statesmen (16-2, 9-1 GSC) versus the Chargers at 4 p.m. inside Walter Sillers Coliseum.
