Blackout, Go Barefoot, Honor Seniors with Centenary Basketball on Saturday
Wednesday, February 23, 2011
SHREVEPORT-As Centenary basketball winds down the 2010-11 season and play its final games in The Summit League, the Ladies and Gents will host Blackout Saturday in the Gold Dome for both contests, beginning at 2 pm and 4:30 pm.

Fans are encouraged to wear the color black to paint the Gold Dome for both the men's and women's games. The first 50 fans at each game will receive a black Centenary basketball t-shirt.

Following the Ladies game at 2 pm, Centenary seniors Ashley Jackson, Anne Farrell and Sarah Weiler along with Ladies' manager Susan Edwards will be honored for their contributions to the program for four years.

Flyers will be distributed to all fans during the women's game for FREE Pizza and salad next door at Pie Works from 3:30-4:30 pm. You must have a flyer to receive the free meal.

Also, the Centenary men's basketball staff will team up with IUPUI's coaching staff and head coach Ron Hunter, who became the first coach to take part in the event, to go "Barefoot for Bare feet". Samaritan's Feet is an effort to help change the lives of children for the better.

"After being exposed to Samaritan's Feet at IUPUI with Ron and making the decision to be a part of this movement, I felt like it was an excellent opportunity to coach and raise awareness at the same time," said head Centenary coach Adam Walsh.

"It's the simple things that we take for granted like shoes when 300 million children are without. I am proud to be a part of this cause."

And finally, Saturday will mark the Annual Summit League Food Fight. Fans are encouraged to bring canned items or cash donations that will be donated to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana.

Saturday's contest for the Gents will be the final game of the season, while the Ladies still host Western Illinois on Monday at 7 pm in the Gold Dome.
