Please join us on Saturday, February 3rd at 10:15am for the Second Annual Special Olympics Unified Rivalry Basketball Game between Tulane and LSU! A team of Tulane students and Special Olympics athletes will compete against LSU students and Special Olympics athletes for bragging rights and the coveted Unified Rivalry Cup. The game will take place at Fogelman Arena in Devlin Fieldouse on Tulane’s Uptown campus, right before the Tulane Women’s Basketball Game against South Florida.
You are invited to cheer on the teams and be a “Fan in the Stands.” If we pack the gym, ESPN might come to New Orleans to cover the game. ESPN has served as the Global Presenting Sponsor of Special Olympics Unified Sports since 2013, supporting the growth and expansion of this program that empowers individuals with and without intellectual disabilities to engage through the power of sports.
If you have questions or want more information please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you in the gym!
