Legends events for Blue Raider Basketball announced
Men's event to take place Feb. 15February 2, 2014 · @MTAthletics
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Middle Tennessee Varsity Club has announced the date for the annual Basketball Legends event for 2014. The men's basketball event will take place on Feb. 15 when the Blue Raiders host Southern Miss.
All former players, managers and coaches are invited to return for the event. A pre-game reception will be held in the Emmett and Rose Kennon Hall of Fame two hours prior to the game. All returning alumni will be introduced at halftime of both games.
The Legends events began several years ago to recognize those who have contributed to the rich tradition of Blue Raider Basketball. Now, the event is held every year.
"When we began our "Legends" events we planned to have them only once every few years, but the feedback from players and fans alike was so positive that we have made them annual events," noted Varsity Club Director Jim Simpson. "The fans love to see their favorite Blue Raiders back on the floor again and our players love returning to campus."
Letters were sent to all alumni earlier this month. If a basketball athlete, manager or coach did not receive a letter, please contact Simpson at (615) 898-5632.
