White Out the Bowman Center for the Men's Basketball Season Opener

November 08, 2012

The Saint Leo Department of Athletics has announced a “White Out” for the November 9 men’s basketball season opener. Fans attending the games are asked to wear white to show their #LionsPride as the 14th ranked men’s basketball team hits the hardwood for their highly anticipated 2012-13 season.

The nationally ranked Lions host Shorter University, with game time slated for 7:30 p.m. in the Marion Bowman Activities Center. Prior to tip-off, there will be a pre-game tailgate held on the University Dining Hall Patio from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The Lions Pride Pre-Game Dinner is open to everyone; students and staff get in with a valid Saint Leo ID, and community members join in on the fun for $5 per person.

Dinner is available through the normal Dining Hall set up, with reserved seating on the outside patio overlooking Lake Jovita. Special appearances will be made by Saint Leo coaching staff throughout the event.

Fans who attend the Lions Pride Pre-Game event will have plenty of time to make their way over to the Bowman Center for game time. Admission to the game is FREE to everyone for the opening game. All future games will require fans who do not have a valid Saint Leo ID to pay for admission by having a $20 Pride Pass, or by paying for general admission. There will be opportunities to purchase Pride Passes at the pre-game event, as well as throughout the game.
