The Gustavus men’s basketball team will host an alumni game to benefit cancer research and Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD) on Sunday, Nov. 13 at 3:00 p.m. at Gus Young Court.

The Gusties, who are two-time defending MIAC champions, will be led by senior captains Adam TeBrake and John Wippler. Their opponents will be a who’s who of recent Gustavus basketball standouts including 2005 MIAC Player of the Year Doug Espenson, Chris TeBrake (2004), Eric Nelson (2004), Bob Southworth (1999), Luke Schmidt (1999), Chad Henke (2002), Kirk Walberg (2002), Brett Boese (2004), and a host of others.

There will be no admission, however cash donations will be accepted at the door. The donations will be passed on to the Coborn Cancer Center in Saint Cloud in memory of former Gustavus basketball player Dean Anderson (Class of 1962), who died of cancer recently, and to Students Against Drunk Driving in memory of a close friend of a Gustavus player who was recently killed in an accident with a drunk driver.
