Posted on October 12th, 2005 by

The Gustavus men’s basketball team will host an exhibition game to benefit hurricane relief efforts on Thursday, Oct. 13 at 6:30 p.m. at Gus Young Court. The Gusties, who are two-time defending MIAC champions, will be led by senior all-conference forward Adam TeBrake and senior center John Wippler. Their opponents will be led by a couple of former Gustavus standouts including career 1,000-point scorers Doug Espenson (2005) and Bob Southworth (1998). Members of the men’s and women’s basketball teams will also compete in a 3-point shooting contest immediately following the game.

The cash donations collected at this event will be combined with other donations to St. Peter Cares to aid residents of Concordia Parish, Louisiana. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the first 2,000 fans will be eligible for drawings for a DVD player and an iPod.
