After playing before a season-best announced crowd of 8,118 on Saturday as Fresno State nearly upset a Top 25 program, the Bulldogs athletic department will conduct another promotional giveaway for the next men’s basketball game.
Fans will have a chance to win $100 bills, as well as an Apple TV, when Fresno State hosts Nevada at 4 p.m. Saturday at the Save Mart Center.
Fresno State is coming off a 70-65, triple-overtime loss to No. 25 Wyoming in which several iPads were given away.
Saturday’s contest will feature a halftime game for Fresno State men’s basketball alumni. In addition, the Bulldogs will wear their alternate navy uniforms against Nevada for the first time in school history in a special “Night in Navy.” All fans are asked to wear Navy to the game as well.
“Having the crowd into the game gives
us energy,” Fresno State sophomore
forward Paul Watson said. “We love having the support of the community and we look forward to them coming out to the next game.”
