There were numerous giveaways, and students had the opportunity to sink a half-court shotand win a $200 declining-balance meal plan from Dining Services. (No one did.) The Dance Team performed during halftime of both games, which were broadcast live on WLYC/ESPN (1050 AM and 104.1 FM). “The Bardo Gym was packed with Penn College students and fans,” said Lisa J. Worth, coordinator for club sports, intramural sports and marketing for athletics. “At times, it was so loud you could not hear what the person next to you was saying. Thunder sticks and hand clappers were given out, which helped increase the level of noise. We hope the teams continue to get the support that we had last night.”
