The San Jacinto College men's basketball team is inviting all local recreation leagues and schools to Youth Night on Saturday, Feb. 20 at 4 p.m., during the game against Lamar State College-Port Arthur.
This event will take place at the Anders Gymnasium on the Central Campus. Local youth basketball players are encouraged to attend the game for free and watch the San Jac team take on their opponent. The first 100 basketball fans to arrive, ages 18 and younger, will receive a free mini basketball.
"We're asking all local youth basketball groups to come out and watch us play," said Head Coach Scott R. Gernander. "This will give them an opportunity to see a higher level of basketball and to meet some of the guys for autographs after the game. It’s fun for us but, hopefully, even more fun for them."
