Raleigh, N.C. – The Peace Pacers basketball team opens the 2010-2011 hoops season Wednesday, November 17, playing host to the Guilford College Quakers. Tipoff is slated for 7:00 pm in the Hermann Center gymnasium.

 

Peace hosts Hartwick College in Friday night’s opening action of the eleventh annual Jackie Ammons Memorial Tournament. Sister Salem College tips off versus Maine Maritime Academy at 6:00 pm, followed by the Pacers and the Hawks at 8:00. The winners pair off Saturday in the championship following the 1:00 pm consolation round.

 

Peace athletics will once again offer live play-by-play broadcasts during the basketball season beginning Wednesday, November 17, with the visiting Quakers.  The audio coverage will continue into the weekend with the Ammons Tournament, including PC’s game against Hartwick Friday night.

 

Peace has announced the return of Patrick Johnson and David McLennan as announcers for a seventh season.  The popular duo will be joined by various Peace students throughout the season as they contribute to the game broadcasts.

 

All broadcasts, home or away, will be proceeded by the 30-minute "Pacer Countdown To Tip-Off," which features a preview of the game, comments from Pacer coach Kelly Johnson and Peace players and news from around the USA South Athletic Conference.

 

Fans can also follow the action with live stats coverage from the sports information office. Links to both resources can be found on the Pacers home page and throughout the basketball schedule. See you on the sidelines!
