The Northwestern State University Men’s Basketball team, under first year coach Corey Gipson, is preparing for success both on, and off, the court with a series of events intended to give back to the community. The team recently held a “Demons Dine and Ditch” event Friday, June 10 at a local BBQ restaurant.
The team grilled hot dogs and burgers for anyone in the community to enjoy free of charge. The team gave away over 150 dinners to neighborhood residents and passing motorists. This dinner is just one of a series of events the men of NSU basketball have held for our community. The team held a camp at Provencal Junior High and has helped serve meals to our city’s homeless population at the Ben D. Johnson Center. In the upcoming months, the student athletes will be hosting a camp at the Ben D. Johnson Center, reading stories to children at parish library story-time and cleaning up litter at Parc Natchitoches.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes all the best to the NSU Men’s Basketball team as they and Coach Gipson embark on the upcoming season. May it be injury-free and victorious! Fork ‘em Demons!
The men’s basketball program will host it’s first home game on November 10, tipoff time to be determined.
