Basketball Teams To Open GLIAC Play At Home

Big Rapids, Mich. - The Ferris State University men's and women's basketball squads officially open Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) play with two league home doubleheaders this week at Jim Wink Arena.

FSU first hosts the Tiffin Dragons in their 2010-11 conference openers on Thursday, Dec. 2, with the men's game at 6 p.m. (ET) and the women's contest starting at approximately 8 p.m. (ET) as part of the league's new scheduling format with the men playing first in all conference doubleheaders this campaign.

Then, on Saturday (Nov. 4), the Bulldogs face one of the two new GLIAC schools this year in the Ohio Dominican Panthers for the first-time ever. The men hit the floor at 1 p.m. (ET) with the women's game set for a 3 p.m. (ET) tipoff.

The Bulldogs will honor the academic success of various student-athletes with a special presentation at halftime of Thursday's women's basketball game as part of the Student-Athlete Academic Achievement Night festivities.

Additionally, Saturday will also represent the first of FSU's Saturday "Kidz Dayz" events sponsored by Green's Sporting Goods at Wink Arena.  The fun, exciting and free activities for kids will include an arts and crafts table, bounce house, halftime events, face painting, photos with Brutus the Bulldog and more.  It is free to children in grades K-12 with a paid adult.

Tickets for both doubleheaders will be sold at the door starting one hour prior to the opening game. FSU students are admitted free with their student identification cards and encouraged to attend and be a part of the "Dawg Pound".
