Four schools.  One HUGE event!

The University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association invites you to join us for the pregame spirit rally to cheer on the men’s basketball teams.

All four schools—UNI, Drake, ISU and Iowa—are collaborating to bring you one large, shared event!

We will offer cash refreshments with snacks and appetizers provided while supplies last.  There will be music by DJ Dave Gallagher, giveaways, mascots and pep rallies with each school’s pep band and cheer squad—fun for everyone! 

1:00 p.m. Game 1—Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Drake Bulldogs

3:30 p.m. Game 2—Iowa State Cyclones vs. Northern Iowa Panthers

*tip time will be approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of Game 1.

As in years past, all four schools will work together to collect new or gently used adult coats, hats, gloves, and mittens for donation to the Central Iowa Shelter and Services. The mission of Central Iowa Shelter & Services is to provide low-barrier shelter, meals, and support services at no cost to adults experiencing homelessness and to facilitate their move toward self-sufficiency.

Hope to see you there! Go Panthers!
