RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Dr. Anne Prisco, president of Felician College, is inviting the Felician and southern Bergen County communities to enjoy a "Green-Out Night" as the Golden Falcon women's and men's basketball teams host Post University on Tuesday, January 29. 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. Admission is FREE for all fans, but voluntary donations will be accepted at the door to benefit the National Make-A-Wish Foundation, of which NCAA Division II is a national sponsor.
Among other confirmed events for Tuesday are a face-painting station, a concession stand, raffles, and halftime entertainment. Green-Out T-shirts will be given away while supplies last.
The Felician women (6-12, 6-5 CACC), coached by Steve Fagan, and coach David DeFerrari's men's squad (6-11, 4-6) are each in the hunt for a playoff spot in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference. Both Golden Falcon teams sit in fourth place in the seven-team CACC North Division with eight conference games remaining. The top four women's and men's teams in the division at season's end will qualify for the postseason.
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.
