Hoops 4 Hurricane Relief

University of South Carolina and Virginia Tech have partnered to help raise funds for those impacted by recent hurricanes. The Gamecocks and Hokies will face off in the "Hoops 4 Hurricane Relief" game on Sunday, November 5 at 2:00 pm at the Colonial Life Arena.  Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at http://bit.ly/uofscvt or by calling 800-4SC-FANS (800-472-3267).  Net proceeds from the game will support hurricane relief efforts in Texas, South Florida and Puerto Rico. 

In addition, Coach Frank Martin and Coach Buzz Williams encourage all fans to make a donation to Hoops 4 Hurricane Relief on this site.  All funds will be directed to the American Legion Post #7 in Port Arthur, Texas, and FIU Strong.

“During our August NABC Board of Director meetings, we asked the NCAA to consider allowing schools to play an additional exhibition game to help give relief to the different communities that have been affected by the storms,” Martin said. “The NCAA should be commended in allowing schools to play games like the one we will play against Virginia Tech to help raise much needed funds to the communities that are in dire need of our help. What a great opportunity for two NCAA Tournament teams to play each other for this cause.”

“Virginia Tech is honored to be able to participate in such an outstanding event,” Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams said. “To be able to help these areas that have seen such devastation due to the hurricanes is the right thing to do. We will be able to play a game against a top-level opponent and have the ability to help people in need in the process. I applaud Coach Martin and his staff for putting this together on such short notice. Plus, there is the ability for our fans, who may not be able to attend the game the opportunity to give through the online link. That’s what the Hokie Nation does, help those in need.”
