PAINESVILLE, Ohio—Lake Erie College will host the Second Annual Hoops Hysteria event on Thursday, October 15, at 8:30 p.m. in the Jerome T. Osborne Family Athletic and Wellness Center on the campus of the college.
The event is free to the public, features numerous giveaways and introduces the 2015-16 men’s and women’s basketball teams. Director of Athletics Reid Guarnieri has described the event as “an extremely entertaining occasion for members of the community to catch a glimpse of the athleticism and skill represented by our student-athletes and to interact with the Storm program in many ways.”
“We would like to thank our sponsor PPG Paints for providing us the ability to put on such an event and draw some much deserved attention to our student-athletes who compete at the highest level in Division II,” said Guarnieri.
Each fan at the event will receive a raffle ticket to take part in various events throughout the evening including the chance to participate in a three-point shooting contest against Men’s Associate Head Coach Kyle Conley, Assistant Athletic Director Lisa Liotta and members of the basketball teams. Attendees will also have a chance to win $100 cash by hitting a half-court shot. At the end of the event, one raffle winner will win an iPad Mini.
The night will also feature a lip sync battle between the two teams as well as a dunk contest with some slams from the Storm men’s team on display.
