Red & Black Game
Cal U All-Stars vs. Steelers Footballers Basketball Team
8 p.m. May 2, 2013 Cal U Convocation Center
Tickets $7 (general admission), $15 (VIP courtside) available at the door

There will be plenty of action on the court when the Cal U All-Stars challenge the Steelers Footballers Basketball Team at California University of Pennsylvania.

But the Cal U crowd will be keeping an eye on the sidelines during the Red & Black Game at 8 p.m. May 2 in the Convocation Center arena.

Interim University President Geraldine M. Jones will be coaching the Cal U All-Stars. Her husband, Jeff Jones, will be coaching the Steelers players.

“I may not know basketball strategy, but I do know our Cal U All-Stars. They have the skill and the will to win!” says President Jones.

“I’m so confident in our team’s ability to win,” answers Jeff Jones, “that in the unlikely event we lose, I will let Gerri shave off my mustache at mid-court immediately after the game.”

Basketball and more

While this good-natured rivalry plays out on the benches, teams comprising Cal U students, faculty and staff will face the Steelers Footballers in four rounds of fast-paced basketball action.

Steelers players will sign autographs for 10 minutes during half-time. More entertainment is planned for intermissions, and refreshments will be available for purchase.

Tickets at the door

Ticket price is $7 for general admission or $15 for courtside VIP seating. Tickets will be sold at the door.

The game is sponsored by Cal U’s Black Student Union. Proceeds benefit the Jennie Carter Scholarship Fund, named in honor of California’s first African-American graduate. Everyone is welcome at this all-ages community event.
