There will also be a poster contest prior to the game with the winning classroom receiving a pizza party with the Virginia women’s basketball team. The women’s basketball student-athletes will visit select schools and classrooms to participate in pep rallies, PE classes, and reading programs.

On game day, some students and teachers will be selected to participate in on-court basketball skills challenges as well as in-game promotions related to nutrition, math, and language arts. Professional instructors will lead students and teachers in physical fitness activities such as dance, stretching, and yoga. Some students will be pre-selected to participate in a pregame tunnel and starting lineups as well as serve as ball kids and guest coaches and a classroom will be pre-selected to perform The National Anthem and The Good Old Song at the game.

The lower rows of sections 101-105 will be held for season ticket holders for this game.  As with all games, some seats in these sections will be held for guests of participating teams.  Season ticket holders will receive a ticket for this game but will not have access to their usual season ticket seating location.
