Beginning in 1933 with the formation of the first men’s team, basketball became an enormous part of NNU campus life. The 1956-57 men’s team won NNC’s first NAIA district championship and made the first appearance at a national tournament. When the Montgomery Field House opened in 1970, the new space allowed for the formation of the first women’s basketball team. Then in 1997, the women won the NAIA national championship. The legacy of these and many other NNU teams will be honored and shared at the Homecoming Basketball Games and Parade.

On Friday, Nov. 8, former NNU basketball players will gather at 1:30 p.m. for the Alumni Men’s Basketball Game. The women’s alumni game will be follow. Then, at 7 p.m. the same evening, all basketball alumni and coaches will be invited to gather for a special reception prior to the 8 o’clock tip-off of the men’s varsity basketball game against Point Loma Nazarene University.

At the game’s halftime, a parade commemorating 80 years of NNU collegiate basketball teams will feature former players and coaches while honoring the spirit and stories from decades of school competition. Tickets to the game are $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, $4 for kids under 18 and $10 for reserved seating. They can be purchased, along with all other Homecoming & Family Weekend 2013 tickets, at
