The Big Green Scream returns to Skidmore this Saturday, Jan. 26, when the men’s and women’s basketball teams host Liberty League rival Union College in the Williamson Sports Center. The women’s game will start at 2 p.m. followed by the men’s game at 4 p.m.

Admission to the games is free and T-shirts and tote bags are available to the first 250 people through the door. There are prizes and giveaways all day long, including gift cards, T-shirts, and a chance to win a 32-inch flat screen TV. There is no charge to enter any of the drawings; winners must be present to claim their prizes.

This event is a chance to cheer on the Thoroughbreds as both the men and women’s teams try to extend their five-game win streaks. Sustainability will be the theme of Big Green Scream entertainment this year. An array of activities with a focus on sustainability is planned, including a trivia game with prizes. Solar-powered popcorn will be distributed, and a potting table to plant kitchen herbs will be set up. A sustainability relay race will be the highlight of the men’s half-time show.

Sponsors of the Big Green Scream are Skidmore Athletics, Student Athletic Advisory Committee, Sustainability Representative Program, Office of Residential Life, Sustainable Skidmore, and Friends of Skidmore Athletics.
