Nov. 6, 2012

CHICAGO – The DePaul athletics department invites fans to kick off the season with a tailgate starting at 4:30 p.m. on Friday for the start of the 2012-13 men’s and women’s basketball seasons. The event is under the “L” tracks next to McGrath-Phillips Arena and will be open for pre-game, halftime and between games on Friday.

The festivities begin at 4:30 p.m. prior to the 5:30 p.m. start for the women’s basketball game against Nicholls State. Women’s head coach Doug Bruno will stop by the tailgate tent and give a pre-game “chalk talk” before leading the Blue Demons into their season opener.

At halftime of the women’s game, the tent will be open again for fans to congregate before catching the second half of the women’s game. The tailgate area will also be open following the end of the women’s game and the start of the men’s game and at halftime of the men’s game.

Prior to the start of the men’s season opener against UC Riverside, former Blue Demon and current staff member Kevin Edwards will preview the men’s basketball season with fans in the tailgate tent. The men’s team tips off its 2012-13 campaign at 8 p.m.

Admission into the Blue Demon Huddle and Tailgate is $10 at the door and DePaul students are admitted for free with their DePaul ID.

Tickets for both DePaul games on Friday night are $20 and for more information, call the DePaul ticket office at (773) 325-SLAM.
