DeKalb, Ill. - Lace up those Chuck Taylor's. Break out the knee braces. Strap on the protective goggles. Or simply come back to campus and catch up with old friends, former teammates and Huskie fans.

 

All former Northern Illinois basketball players, coaches and managers of both the Huskie men's and women's hoops squads are invited to attend NIU's annual Alumni Days.

 

The Northern Illinois women's basketball alumni will gather on Sat., January 12 while the men's basketball alumni day is Sat., February 2.  


 

 

 

The days begin with the alumni games. Doors to the NIU Convocation Center will open at 10 a.m. for both Alumni Games with each contest scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.

 

Following the game, alums are invited to the Sixth Man Grille to enjoy refreshments, conversation and a pre-game breakdown by a member of the Huskie Coaching staff.

 

The alumni are then invited to enjoy watching NIU basketball. The Northern Illinois women's team will take on Ball State, while the men will battle Ohio. Both Mid-American Conference contests are slated for a 2 p.m. tip-off. All alumni in attendance will be recognized at halftime of each game.

 

Following the men's contest against Ohio, there will be a postgame party at Johnny's Charhouse, located at 1950 DeKalb Avenue in Sycamore, Illinois.
