HoopapaLUza, Meet Your Seat night set for Tues., Nov. 3
With basketball season right around the corner, Lipscomb Athletics is hosting a “Meet Your Seat” night next Tuesday Nov. 3 in conjunction with HoopapaLUza, the annual basketball kickoff event.

The afternoon’s events will kick off at 3 p.m. with George Plaster, Willy Daunic, and Darren McFarland from 104.5 The Zone broadcasting live in front of Allen Arena.  Fans are welcome to stop by to purchase season tickets for this year’s basketball season, meet the Sports Zone team, and your Bisons teams and friends.

There will be a wide range of fun activities throughout the afternoon including inflatables, a corn hole tournament, and a hole-in-one golf contest.   The grill will be fired up with complementary hamburgers.

Season tickets for all Bisons and Lady Bisons basketball games are $150. Any fan purchasing three season tickets will receive a fourth season ticket free.

The “Meet you seat” activities will conclude at 6:30 p.m. when the Lipscomb volleyball team takes on Austin Peay on the Allen Arena floor.  The Lady Bisons are 20-3 overall and on a 17 match win streak.

Beginning at 7 p.m., The Zone’s Clay Travis and Chad Withrow will broadcast live from the south end zone of Allen Arena.

Following a short break after the volleyball match, HoopapaLUza explodes on the court beginning at 9 p.m.   In a fast paced series of events, the 2009-10 Bisons and Lady Bisons team members will be introduced.  There will be a 3-point shootout contest, a dunk contest with celebrity judges, and special entertainment by the Lady Bisons.

There will be cash prizes, gift card giveaways, and a free television given away in a series of drawings throughout the event.  Ice Cream will be given away by the players at the conclusion.  Fans are invited to stay around and visit with players, coaches, and friends after HoopapaLUza.

Plans are for 104.5 The Zone to broadcast throughout HoopapaLUza with the Overtime Show hosted by Brent Dougherty and Mickey Ryan on the air from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.

If you are unable to attend the event but would like to purchase season tickets, please call the Lipscomb Athletic Ticket Office at 615-966-5899.
