Evangel Basketball to Again Partner with Weller Elementary

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Evangel University Department of Athletics is partnering with Weller Elementary to help provide winter clothing for kids in the school. The December 5, men's and women's basketball double-header against College of the Ozarks will serve as a donation date with half of the game's admission helping with the purchase.

This is the third consecutive year the Evangel men's and women's basketball teams have helped provide either winter wear to students at Weller Elementary. The Crusaders also welcome students and their families to a select basketball double-header each season, which this year will be Feb. 7, when the Crusaders host Avila.

Game time for the December 5, meeting of the Rib Crib Highway 65 Shootout against College of the Ozarks is scheduled for a 5:30 p.m. tipoff with the women and the men to follow.
