Elmira College men’s and women’s basketball teams will host the annual Hoops Hysteria event, sponsored by the Student Association Finance Board, on Wednesday, November 11th, at 9:00 p.m. in Speidel Gymnasium.

The first 500 fans to enter the gym will receive a free Hoops Hysteria t-shirt and each fan will be given five free raffle tickets for a number of prizes that will be awarded throughout the night.

Hoops Hysteria event will consist of three basketball-related events, two cheerleading performances, one each by the competition and game teams, and a performance by the EC Danceline. Two of the basketball-related events will not involve the Elmira basketball teams. Instead, representatives from EC’s athletic programs and residence life staff will participate. One person from each EC athletic team will compete in the Team Shootout and the Resident Assistant Shootout, with representatives competing from each residence hall.

New to Hoops Hysteria is a canned food drive that both teams will be hosting. Students are encouraged to bring canned goods to Wednesday’s event and in return, for every can donated, the student will receive three additional raffle tickets. A maximum of 10 extra tickets will be distributed in return for three cans. However, fans are encouraged to bring more than three. All goods will be donated to a local food bank.
