VU WBB: Team Promotes Thanksgiving Tourney
Posted Nov 23, 2011
On Wednesday afternoon, the Vanderbilt women's basketball team, coaches and staff, and Mr. Commodore visited Green Hills Mall to promote the Thanksgiving Tournament, which will take place on Friday and Saturday in Memorial Gym. VandyMania's Whitney D. stopped by and shares these photos from the outing.
fans know that the Thanksgiving Tournament is a great value for families. Besides four women's basketball games, there are also activities and prizes specially geared for children. And perhaps best of all, an extended family of 32 people can all attend all tournament games for the low low price of exactly $0.00. (Hint: That's not a typo; all tournament games are free admission.)
Vanderbilt's marketing department has been spreading the word at their own sporting events including men's basketball games and football games. But on Wednesday, the women's basketball team took it a step further with an added personal touch by taking a field trip to busy Green Hills Mall to promote the tournament.
Base of operations was a table with poster, schedule cards, tickets, information about the tournament and a drawing for an autographed basketball located near one of the main entrances to the mall. While some of the players and staff stayed at the table to greet interested shoppers, others walked through the mall, introducing themselves, making friends, and signing autographs.
This year's tournament brings in another team from the Nashville area, the Lipscomb Lady Bisons, the Liberty Flames, a perennial mid-major NCAA team, and the
Sooners, currently ranked #12 in the country.
The first round on Friday features Vanderbilt and Lipscomb at 2 p.m., followed by Liberty and Oklahoma. On Saturday, the losers of the opening round will meet at 2 p.m. in the consolation game, and the first-round winners will play afterwards, at approximately 4 p.m.
And don't forget . . . admission to all games is free, so bring the whole family.
