Lipscomb athletics marketing has several exciting events planned for the remainder of the 2011-12 Bison basketball season. Events are planned benefiting families, the community and the university as we close out the home portion of the basketball schedule.
Every men’s game in Allen Arena will feature a “Kid’s Zone,” face painting, inflatable moon bounce, balloon animal artist, basketball shooting games and a foosball table for children to enjoy. Postgame, all children are invited to come on the floor at Allen Arena and shoot on the goals.
102.5 the Game, the flagship station for Bison basketball, will broadcast live remotes from Allen Arena featuring Willy Daunic and Joe Dubin prior to home men’s games against Stetson (Jan. 16) and ETSU (Feb. 20). The “3HL” crew on 104.5 the Zone of Brent Dougherty, Blaine Bishop and Clay Travis will be on location in Allen Arena prior to the Bison’s Jan. 30 game against Jacksonville.
