Pep Rally/Alumni Game Open MBB Reunion Weekend

Feb. 13, 2017

The University’s weekend-long National Marquette Day celebration begins Friday night with the third-annual outdoor pep rally as well as a special men’s basketball alumni game to tipoff 100th reunion events.

The pep rally begins at 6 p.m. in Lot F (across from Al McGuire Center) and concludes with fireworks at 6:45 p.m. Once the fireworks are complete, those in attendance are encouraged to warm up in the Al McGuire Center and watch Marquette’s former players take the court at 7 p.m. Former standouts Bo Ellis and Earl Tatum will serve as team captains and a postgame autograph session is planned on the court. See the list below for those players who have confirmed participation.

Nearly 200 former players, coaches and staff members will be on campus this weekend for not only Friday night’s festivities, but also a pregame reception and special recognition ceremony during halftime of Saturday night’s game against Xavier.
