UCATS Hosts Men's Basketball Happy Hour
The University of Cincinnati hosted an exclusive meet & greet with the Head Coach Mick Cronin and members of the men’s basketball team Monday, February 11, to show appreciation for all basketball season ticket holders that had perfect attendance during the non-conference portion of the men’s basketball season.
All season ticket-holders with perfect attendance, along with UCATS donors at the $3500 and higher level, were invited to the event, which took place in the Lindner Center Atrium.
UC’s most loyal attendees have helped the Bearcats to increase attendance by more than 26 percent during the 2012-13 season.
Approximately 100 people were on hand to enjoy complimentary drink and appetizers.
University of Cincinnati Director of Athletics Whit Babcock opened the ceremony, before handing the floor over to Coach Cronin, who discussed the remainder of UC’s season and fielded question s from donors and supporters.
UC senior basketball players Cashmere Wright, JaQuon Parker, Cheikh Mbodj and Alex Eppensteiner were also on hand to speak with donors and pose for pictures.
“We really wanted to put on an event in recognition of our season ticket holders that show up for each and every game, regardless of who the Bearcats are playing,” said Greg Harrell, Assistant Athletic Director of Ticket Sales and Annual Giving. “Their continued support is extremely important to the atmosphere in Fifth Third Arena, which is continuing to improve.”
