LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. - It's a big night of basketball Friday night at the ARC as Siena Women's Basketball goes for the season sweep of MAAC Preseason No. 2 Iona at 7 p.m. The Saints will be hosting their annual Gold Rush game and its also Serena Moore Bobblehead Doll Night.
Fans are asked to wear gold apparel to the game in an attempt to "Gold Out" the ARC. At the door, fans can purchase the Official 2011 Gold Rush t-shirt for $10 which serves as their ticket to the game. Additionally, fans who wear the t-shirt to this game and also to the men's Gold Rush game on Feb. 19 will be eligible to win great prizes during both games.
The bobblehead doll is one of the most anticipated collectable items of the year. But this year's bobblehead is only available while supplies last, so fans are encouraged to arrive to the game early Friday to ensure their ability to receive the Serena Moore Bobblehead.
Additionally, both team's coaching staffs will be showing their support for Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers Awareness Weekend by wearing sneakers with their suits to demonstrate their support for the American Cancer Society and its vision of a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Basketball fans are encouraged to also wear sneakers to the game to show their support.
At halftime, local youth will be participating in the Eighth Annual Siena Dance Clinic. Girls ages 5-17 have been practicing routines under the supervision and guidance of member's of the Siena Dance Team and will get their chance to perform in front of the crowd. These dancers will also perform at the men's game Sunday against Niagara at 2 p.m. at Times Union Center.
