Fans of Maryville College – and especially former students – are invited to join the Maryville College Alumni Association this Saturday, Jan. 28, to cheer on the Scots against LaGrange College and meet MC’s new head football coach, Mike Rader.

A hospitality space with athletic memorabilia and refreshments will be available inside Cooper Athletic Center during this family-friendly day.

Tip-off for the women’s game is 2 p.m.; the men’s game begins at 4 p.m. Kendal Wallace, head coach of LaGrange’s men’s basketball team, is a 1995 alumnus of Maryville College and former assistant of MC head men’s basketball coach Randy Lambert, also an MC graduate.

This second-annual “Alumni Basketball Day” is hosted by the Maryville College.

“The event is a great time for alumni to come together – no matter their graduation year or whether they played athletics as a student – and cheer on the Scots to victory,” said Andrea May, director of outreach and alumni affairs.

Children ages 8 and under are admitted free. Older children and college students are admitted for $3. Adult ticket price is $5.
