The 2019-2020 Angelina College Roadrunner men’s basketball team would like to introduce itself to the community, and to do so, the players and coaches are inviting the public to the “Basketball Tipoff Bonanza” as part of the ‘Runners’ season opener on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at Shands Gymnasium.

The Roadrunners, picked in pre-season polls to finish first in the conference’s South Zone, will host McLennan College in the regular-season opener for both teams. Along with what promises to be an exciting game, the Bonanza will begin at 5:30 p.m. and offer free food and drinks to fans while supplies last. In addition, there will be bounce houses and other activities outside AC’s Activity Center, with food trucks such as Holy Smoke BBQ, among others.

At half time, the college will honor long-time supporter and sponsor Brookshire Brothers.

The Roadrunners and Highlanders will tip off at 7 p.m. The game will be live streamed at angelinaathletics.com.
