RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Anne M. Prisco, Ph.D., President of Felician College, is inviting the Felician and southern Bergen County communities to enjoy the College's Second Annual Basketball "Green-Out" as the Golden Falcon women's and men's teams host Bloomfield College on Tuesday, February 11. The women's game tips off at 6 p.m. with men's action to follow at approximately 8 p.m.
In the spirit of the event, both Felician teams will wear their road green uniforms, and Golden Falcon fans are also encouraged to wear dark green. Green-Out T-shirts will be given away while supplies last.
Beginning at halftime of the women's game, light refreshments will be served on the gymnasium stage. Among other confirmed events are a face-painting station and a bake sale. Admission is free for Felician faculty, staff, students and alumni with proper identification.
Prior to the men's game, Dr. Prisco will present the two inaugural members of the Felician Athletics Hall of Fame, Bob Symons and Dr. Russ Wiebe (posthumously) with the plaques that will eventually comprise the permanent on-campus display. The ceremony will formally unveil the Hall of Fame to the Felician community.
The Felician women (10-11, 8-6 CACC), coached by Steve Fagan, sit in a tie for third place in the North Division of the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference with five league games remaining, and are in the middle of the CACC playoff hunt. Meanwhile, coach David DeFerrari's men's squad (5-16, 3-11) looks to stave off elimination from the postseason race. Both Bloomfield teams are in first place in the CACC North.
Felician plays its home basketball games at Job Gymnasium on its Rutherford Campus. More information is available by contacting the department of athletics at (201) 559-3333 or MentoneM@felician.edu.
