Men's Basketball Alumni Game, Championship Ring Presentation November 10
The Penn State DuBois Men's Basketball team will kick off its 2012-13 season with the Alumni Game on November 10. The contest will feature some of the most talented players from the past, taking on this year's 2012-13 team.
Alumni players will include Marcus Genevro, Kevin Genevro, Josh Salter, Jimmy Higgins, and Kyle Mahoney, all from Elk County Catholic; Jonny Songer and Kyle Vogt, from Cameron County; Gabe Rosenberg and Pat Brown from DuBois Area High; Mark Shannon from Brockway Area; Kyle Dynda of Austin; Dylan Howard from Oswayo Valley; Neil Hanes of St. Marys; Derek Burdick of Coudersport; and Jovan Brown of Sayre High School.
The Alumni Game is slated for 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 10, in the Penn State DuBois gymnasium. Before tipoff, Chancellor Anita McDonald will present Penn State University Athletic Conference (PSUAC) championship rings to the players and coaching staff of the 2011-12 team, who brought home the PSUAC title last year.
This is the second PSUAC championship title won by the campus since the athletic programs were reinstated. The 2006-07 basketball team captured the PSUAC title and finished second in the USCAA National Tournament in 2007. Several of the alumni playing in Saturday's game are members of that championship team, including Howard, Dynda, Vogt, Songer, Pat Brown, Rosenberg, Marcus Genevro, Kevin Genevro, and Hanes.
Athletic Coordinator Ken Nellis said, "I can't think of a better way to recognize the accomplishments of the 2012 team than with the alumni on hand who created the tradition and pride that we have on campus for Penn State DuBois basketball. This will be a fun day and great way for fans to see a lot of the players they enjoyed watching over the years. I anticipate the gym to be full and great basketball skills to be on display."
