The Juniata College men's basketball program will hold its alumni game this coming Saturday, February 17 at 11:00 a.m. in Memorial Gymnasium on the College Hill campus. A total of 22 Juniata graduates are slated to take part in the tilt that will take place before the men's and women's basketball doubleheader with Elizabethtown College.

The collection of graduates ranging from the 1960s through the 1990s will split into two squads and "do battle". The former student-athletes from the 1990s will take on the older alums from the 60s, 70s and 80s. The 1990s squad will be made up of Casey Craig '97, who currently works in the Boston Celtics' organization, Darin Hazel '96, Craig Instone '95, Scott Instone '93, Jim Januszki '97, Dale Miller '97, Mike Richards '97, Jordan Stadler '97, Kevin Trost '97 and Khase Wilkinson '97. "The Youngsters" will challenge a squad made up of Jim Bigelow '61, Dave Bizousky '80, Keith Black '73, Joey DeBlase '89, Lee Hudzicki '83, Scott Lehigh '82, Bob Musser '85, Wayne Paul '88, Mark Rucinski '85, who was inducted into the Juniata College Sports Hall of Fame this past November, Tim Tabor '76, Don Williams '76, and Andy Zimmerman '86. In addition to competing against each other on Saturday morning, a group of alums will be back on campus on Friday to scrimmage the Juniata junior varsity team in Memorial Gymnasium at 8:00 p.m.

At 2:00 p.m. the Eagle women's team will take on the Blue Jays to cap the regular season, while the men will challenge Elizabethtown at 4:00 p.m. to end their campaign.

Following the men's game on Saturday afternoon, the men's basketball alumni will have a gathering at The Brass Rail, located in the Days Inn of Huntingdon.
