C of I hoops teams host 'Meet the Yotes Night'

A new era of Coyote basketball begins this fall at The College of Idaho, and the C of I basketball coaches want students, fans, season ticket holders and the entire Caldwell community to get to know their teams before the regular season tips off.

With that in mind, first-year men’s coach Scott Garson, women’s basketball coach Reagan Rossi and their respective teams will host “Meet the Yotes Night,” a basketball tipoff party set to begin at 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29 inside the J.A. Albertson Activities Center on the C of I campus in Caldwell.

“We’re excited to kick off the season, and we want to share that excitement with our students and our fans,” Garson said. “We have such a supportive fan base and such a great student section with the ‘Yote Fam,’ and we want our fans to get to know our players and see what high-character people we have on both our men’s and women’s teams.”

There is no admission charge for the event, which will include a 3-point shootout, a dunk contest, cheering practice and opportunities for fans to compete for prizes and meet Coyote coaches and players. Click here to check out more details on the official Facebook event page.
