For the fourth consecutive year, the Atlantic 10 conference will be sponsoring the A-10 shootout. The event will take place at the Health and Wellness Center Saturday at 7 p.m. The event consists of two-person teams shooting from different targets around the court.
There are men’s, women’s, and co-ed divisions. The co-ed winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the A-10 Tournament in Cincinnati, Ohio. At the event, there will be giveaways from local restaurants and prizes for every participant.
