Aggies To Host Alumni, Blue-Gold Games
GREENSBORO – The North Carolina A&T men’s basketball team will be hosting its first Alumni Game 6 p.m., Friday, Oct. 25 at Corbett Sports Center. The game will consist of Aggie players from the 1980’s, 90’s and 2000’s. The Alumni Game will be followed by the annual Blue-Gold game featuring the 2013-14 players. Admission to the Alumni and Blue-Gold games are free.
“We’re looking to have our past meet our future,” said A&T head coach Cy Alexander. “A&T has traditionally been a championship program. Bringing back some of the players who won past championships and letting them interact with some of our young players will bring about the mindset in them that we are a championship program.”
A&T won its MEAC-leading 16th conference championship in March. A&T won an NCAA record seven straight MEAC titles from 1982-88. The Aggies begin the defense of their 2013 championship on Nov. 8 when it faces Greensboro College at Corbett Sports Center at 7 p.m.
