C of I basketball set for Meet the Yotes Night

A new season 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.

Join men’s coach Scott Garson, first-year women’s basketball coach Mark Owen and their teams as they host “Meet the Yotes Night,” a basketball tipoff party set to begin at 8:50 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28, inside the J.A. Albertson Activities Center on the C of I campus in Caldwell. Fans also will be able to purchase and renew season tickets prior to the festivities, beginning at 8 p.m.

Coach Garson’s squad enters the season as the unanimous coaches’ pick to win the Cascade Collegiate Conference championship, after winning both regular-season and tournament titles last season. The Lady Yotes were picked to finish third.

“Last season, the YoteFam made an incredible impact on our teams’ ability to perform at a high level during home games,” Garson said. “Meet the Yotes night was a great kickoff to what turned out to be a record-setting basketball season. We look forward to having everybody in the campus community come out so we can get a head start on creating the best home-court atmosphere in the conference. Our men’s and women’s teams appreciate all your support and look forward to seeing you out there!”

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.
