Join Javelina Athletics on Saturday for a tailgate & uniform sale

Join Javelina Athletics on Saturday, January 21, for a tailgate before the men's and women's basketball doubleheader! The tailgate will begin at 12:30 p.m. on the grass area on the east side of the SPEC and food will be provided for the first 200 people only. All alumni, students, faculty, staff and other Javelina fans are invited to attend the tailgate prior to the start of the basketball doubleheader. The women's team will tip off at 1 p.m. followed by the men's team at approximately 3 p.m. 

Please note, no alcoholic beverages are allowed at this event.

Additionally, the athletic department will be hosting a special one day sale of previous uniforms and practice gear on Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at McCulley Hall.

Due to the department’s recent sponsorship deal with adidas, all Javelina programs are getting new game uniforms.  This means that there is a surplus of gear that the department is looking to sell to fans at a reduced price.  There will be many baseball, basketball, football, softball, track and field and volleyball jerseys, practice and travel gear available.
