Piqua basketball to hold Alumni game

Wounded Warrior event Saturday at Echo

Staff Reports

The first Piqua Basketball Varsity Alumni Night will be Nov. 23 at Piqua High School.

For anyone who played for Piqua, it is a chance to dust off your sneakers and play in front of a crowd.

Depending on the response for the game, players will get a 20-minute half playing high school rules.

There will also be officiating for the game.

This is the fundraiser for this season, so the team hopes to sell some Piqua gear and concessions will be open.

The doors will open at 5 p.m. and the first game will start by 5:30 p.m.

Anyone interested in playing, should contact Piqua boys basketball coach Heath Butler at butlerh@piqua.org or call (937) 773-6314 ext. 1231.

Those playing can use the showers at Piqua after the game.

Tickets for the game will be $3 and can be purchased at the door.
