Reunion of 2000 Calvin Men’s Hoops Team To Take Place/1000 Pt Scorers Honored in Women’s Hoops
Thursday, February 11, 2010
The 2000 national championship Calvin men’s basketball team will be honored this Saturday at halftime of the Calvin-Kalamazoo varsity men’s basketball game. Saturday’s game will mark a 10-year reunion for the 2000 Knights who finished the season 30-2 overall including a 14-0 record in MIAA play.
The reunion coincides with Calvin’s recently created uKnight Week which features activities for Calvin alumni, faculty, students and staff in February. The creation of uKnight Week replaces what formerly was known as Calvin’s winter homecoming weekend. Calvin’s homecoming now takes place in the fall.
This is the first year that uKnight Week is including varsity athletic competition and takes place during a year marking the 10-year anniversary of the 2000 Calvin men’s basketball team. During the 2012 uKnight Week, a 20-year reunion of the 1992 national championship Calvin men’s basketball team is being planned.
As part of Saturday’s festivities, members of the 2000 men’s basketball team will gather for a pick-up game at Van Noord Arena in the morning followed by a luncheon in the Spoelhof Fieldhouse Complex prior to the varsity men’s basketball game (3 p.m.).
