Pine Belt Recovery Day triple header, Feb. 4

Come cheer on the Crusaders and the Golden Eagles!
 
Pine Belt Community Recovery Day will feature a basketball triple header at Reed Green Coliseum Saturday, Feb. 4. The special day will allow fans the opportunity to donate to William Carey University and the Salvation Army to aid and assist in the tornado relief efforts.

 
There will be no admission price for the William Carey men’s and women’s games, but in lieu of that, Southern Miss Athletics is asking that fans make donations to William Carey University and the Salvation Army. Crusader student-athletes will be at all three basketball games collecting contributions to benefit the recovery effort at William Carey University and the Salvation Army will be on-site to collect non-perishable goods. Cash and check donations will be accepted.

 
Beginning at 2 p.m., fans can purchase tickets to the Southern Miss vs. Western Kentucky game at the Reed Green Coliseum box office. Bleacher seating for the Southern Miss game is $10 and chair back tickets are $20. All fans who wish to attend the Golden Eagles' 4 p.m. game must have a ticket for entry. All Southern Miss and William Carey students will receive free admission to all three games.

 
All current Southern Miss men's basketball season ticket holders are encouraged to make a donation to the causes. Additionally, all William Carey students will receive free admission to Southern Miss basketball games for the remainder of the season. William Carey students are asked to show their valid student ID at the Reed Green Box Office in order to gain admission to all remaining Southern Miss basketball games at no charge.
