Join us on Tuesday, March 25 at 4 p.m. in Branch Rickey Arena as we pay tribute to the 2007-08 OWU men’s basketball team!

The OWU Athletic Department invites you to a pep rally to show the 2008 North Coast Athletic Conference tournament champions and “Sweet 16” participants your appreciation for their hard work and success in the 2008 NCAC and NCAA basketball tournaments.

Due to the inclement weather and OWU’s spring break, many members of the OWU and Delaware communities were not able to attend the games and show their support for the team. This is our chance to applaud the accomplishments of this team.

The rally will begin at 4 p.m. in Branch Rickey Arena, followed by a reception with the team and coaches, and is open to the public.
