Brevard, N.C. - The Brevard College Tornados athletic department would like to announce that Saturday's men's and women's basketball contests between the Tornados and the Wingate University Bulldogs will be the BLACKOUT game for the 2008-2009 season.
Brevard's fans and students are encouraged to wear black to Boshamer Gymnasium to support their Tornados as they finish a four-game homestand that started Saturday against Lincoln Memorial. The women's game will tip off at 2 p.m. and the men's game will tip at 4 p.m.
In last year's BLACKOUT, February 27, 2008, the Tornado Men's Basketball team defeated Newberry College in a thrilling 74-68 game behind by Joseph Chilton's 24 points and Jonathan Whitson's 11 points and 11 rebounds.
