Local community members, including Penn State alumni and friends, are invited to come to the Winter White Out games of the Penn State Lehigh Valley (PSU-LV) women’s and men’s basketball teams on Sunday, Feb. 9, at Stabler Arena in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The fun starts with the women’s game at noon and continues with the men’s game starting at 2 p.m. Both teams are playing Penn State Hazleton.
“Come out to show your Penn State pride and support our teams! We will have fun activities for kids and many chances to win Penn State prizes. We are excited to have local youth associations play mini games at the halftimes of each game, which gives young players a fun experience playing in a big arena.”
-- Rich Fatzinger, athletic director at Penn State Lehigh Valley
The event features multiple chances to win Penn State prizes, an inflatable moon bounce and basketball hoop for kids to enjoy during breaks and at halftime, and photos with the Nittany Lion mascot.
