Anxious to get a look at this season’s University of Vermont men’s and women’s basketball teams? Head to Patrick Gym on Saturday afternoon for the Catamount Tip-Off.
The sixth annual event will feature each team playing a 20-minute intrasquad scrimmage, followed by a 10-minute co-ed scrimmage. The players will also compete in 3-point shooting and dunk contests.
The basketball action starts at noon, following a pre-game pizza party at 11 a.m. Proceeds from the $5 admission will go to the Vermont Cancer Center. Here’s UVM’s official release on the Catamount Tip-Off, which talks about other promotions coinciding with the event.
Both teams play their first pre-season games the following weekend at Patrick Gym. The Catamount women’s will play host to Laval on Oct. 31 at 1 p.m.; the UVM men will welcome Concordia on Nov. 1 at 1 p.m.
