Go Blue Preview Oct. 16 at Coliseum

With the start of the 2011-12 basketball season just around the corner, UNCG will host the Go Blue Preview at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16, at the Greensboro Coliseum. The event will serve as a sneak peek at the Spartan men’s and women’s basketball teams.

The event, which is free and open to the general public, will include the introduction of both teams, a special presentation for the Maui Invitational and a chance to meet new women’s basketball coach Wendy Palmer. There will be free food and T-shirts and an autograph session with both teams.

Plus, the costumed Spartan mascot, introduced in 2010, will have a name. His name will be unveiled at the event, says Dacia Ijames (Athletics), and the winner of the naming contest will be announced as well.

Free shuttles from campus will depart from in front of the Elliott University Center.
