Northwestern Oklahoma State University hopes to turn Percefull Fieldhouse into a wall of white on Thursday, Jan. 13, when the Rangers play host to St. Gregory’s University for a Sooner Athletic Conference doubleheader.
As part of the school’s “White Out” festivities, all Ranger fans are encouraged to wear white clothing, paint their faces and bring signs to the game, and Northwestern will help in that cause by giving the first 700 fans free white Ranger Nation t-shirts. Tip off for the Lady Rangers’ game is 6 p.m. with the men following about 8 p.m.
“This annual event is a fun way to get Ranger fans excited about the basketball season, and this year helps to kick off the spring semester,” said Steve Valencia, associate vice president for university relations. “Our fans have proven over the past few years that they can make a big difference by showing up and getting loud at our games. We have big wins in Percefull to prove that and want to add more on Jan. 13.”
In addition to the t-shirt giveaway, Northwestern students who register by halftime of the women’s game will be eligible to participate in various contests for prizes.
“It can be a great environment for the Rangers if everyone comes dressed in white and ready to support our teams,” Valencia said.
