The Men’s Basketball Alumni Game is back for its fifth year. It’s a great way for the players to give back to the fans and also for them to raise a great deal of money for charity. So far they have raised $25,000 for charity. This year, the chosen charity is Special Olympics West Virginia. The game is slated for 7 p.m. Saturday night.
“We’re hyped to be back,” said John Flowers, player and organizer of the event. “We want our fifth year to be the biggest, raising the most we ever have for our chosen charity. And, we want our fans to have the most fun.”
The game will once again be played at the Joe Retton Arena at Fairmont State University.
The @WVUalumnigame returns to Fairmont State this Saturday.
