Tuesday is 'Foam Finger Night' at college basketball games
Genesee Community College and the campus radio station 90.7 WGCC will host "Foam Finger Night" on Tuesday, Feb. 21 during the men's and women's basketball games against Alfred State College.
The first 50 Genesee fans to the women's game and the first 50 people to the men's game will receive a limited edition WGCC/Cougars foam finger.
Additional foam fingers will be sold for $5, with all proceeds going to the college radio station for new sportscasting equipment. Donations will also be accepted.
"It will be a lot of fun," said WGCC sportscaster Jon White, who will also be broadcasting the games on the radio. "I hope it brings a lot of excitement and a lot of people out to support the Cougars and watch two very good basketball games."
Tuesday will also mark the last regular season home game for both the men's and women's basketball teams. They will honor each member of their sophomore class with a pregame ceremony, recognizing their accomplishments as a member of the program.
Both teams are currently ranked third in their respective Western New York Athletic Conference Coaches Poll and are fighting for better position in the post-season, which begins on Feb. 28.
Admission for both games is free of charge. The women's game will begin at 6 p.m. and the men's game will follow at around 8 p.m. The pre-game ceremonies will begin approximately 15 minutes before tip-off of each game.
