Mercer Intramurals and Quadworks are partnering up this year for basketball’s Championship Night on Monday, Feb. 27. The Intramural staff hopes it will be their largest turnout ever.
“These are obviously the best basketball teams in their respective divisions so we’re looking forward to giving them a great atmosphere to play in,” said Assistant Director of Intramurals Todd Thomas.
Quadworks will be providing free pizza, donuts and prizes for participants and spectators alike. Inflatable games and raffles will be held throughout the night as well.
Many businesses from around Macon have donated gift cards and other items to support the event. During the halftime of each game, these items will be given out to the winner of various contests. Gift cards include: Barnes and Noble, Margarita’s, Olive Garden, El Som, Moe’s, Walmart, Bass Pro Shops, La Berry, Chick-fil-A, Texas Roadhouse, Amstar Movie Theatre, Applebee’s, Locos and more.
“It’s always been our premiere night of the year, but this year with Quadworks’ help it’s going to be bigger than it’s ever been,” added Thomas.
Similar to the activities held on Tournament Night for Dodgeball in the fall, the basketball Championship Night is taking it a step further. Teams that make it to the finals of their respective leagues will have introduction videos with their names, pictures and personalized music televised on a projected screen.
Todd would go on to say that this should be an exciting time for Mercer fans due to the A-Sun Tournament being held in the UC later on the week.
Come on out for some free food, chances to win prizes and championship basketball in the University Center Intramural basketball courts. All of the courts will be in use. The festivities will start at 6 p.m. Games will be played every hour and fifteen minutes.
