Basketball teams hope to attract fans, help community with fundraiser

The Lane basketball teams will host the seventh annual Jam the Gym event on Jan. 25 in Building 5.
This year’s event is sponsored by Bi-Mart and supports FOOD for Lane County, Lane County’s regional food bank.

Fans are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to the game, in lieu of paying the price of admission.

“We’re trying to do a little bit of community outreach, collecting food for (FOOD for Lane County) but also trying to get the community to come out on our campus, see a game, and get excited and maybe come watch us play again,” Lane women’s basketball coach Greg Sheley said.

The first 500 spectators to arrive will receive “Titan Rally Towels,” courtesy of Bi-Mart, which has sponsored the event each year since its debut.

Both the Lane men and women’s teams will face the Chemeketa Community College Storm at the event.

The Titan women tip off at 2 p.m., while the men are scheduled to start at 4 p.m.
