LOGAN, Utah - Utah State men’s basketball had the chance to interact with women in the community on Thursday night, hosting the first Ladies Night and providing women in the community an inside look at the hoops program at USU.
The evening included various on-court drills, tours of the basketball facilities, film sessions and question and answer sessions, not only with players and coaches, but with their wives as well. The evening finished with an autograph session with the team, photo ops and final conversations with the coaching staff and players.
Among the participants was Utah State Deputy Athletic Director Jana Doggett, wife of USU associate head coach Tarvish Felton.
“It was tons of fun, it was great for the community to be able to connect with our players on a more personal level as well as our coaching staff. It was a fun event in general for women just to hang out together,” she said. “From an administrative standpoint, I loved that some of our community was able to get a more personable contact with our student-athletes.”
Utah State will look to continue Ladies Night next year and make it an annual tradition.
Utah State men’s basketball will host a lone exhibition game against Southern Virginia on Friday, Nov. 4, before opening the 2016-17 season at UC Irvine on Friday, Nov. 11. The Aggies will host their home opener against NJIT on Monday, Nov. 14, as part of 16 regular season home games for Utah State during the 2016-17 season.
