Fans Encouraged To Wear Black To Gonzaga-Memphis Game
Feb. 6, 2009
SPOKANE, Wash. - Fans attending Saturday's Gonzaga University-University of Memphis game in the Spokane Arena are encouraged to wear black shirts to "Black Out the Arena."
The game is promoted by Ronald McDonald House Charities to bring awareness to and aid in the fight against childhood cancer.
"This one-time special event will show unity and support for the Ronald McDonald House and it's endeavors, not only in Spokane but nationwide," said Mike Forness, executive director of Ronald McDonald House Charities in Spokane.
The game, to be aired by ESPN as part of their College GameDay Festivities, begins at 6 p.m. in the sold out Spokane Arena. Memphis, 19-3, is ranked 14th by Associated Press and 15th by USA Today/ESPN, while Gonzaga, 17-4, brings a nine-game winning streak into the event following Thursday's 93-78 victory at the University of Portland. The Bulldogs, 8-0 in the West Coast Conference, have at least a two-game lead over the rest of the WCC teams. Gonzaga is ranked 18th in both polls this week.
