Aggie men announce a pair of events

From page B8 | January 24, 2013 |

The UC Davis men’s basketball team is looking for two Big West Conference wins this weekend — hosting CS Fullerton on Thursday then UC Riverside on Saturday — while also working to give back to the community.

A Friday event, which aims to raise money to fight human trafficking, is followed by Education Appreciation Night during Saturday’s game at The Pavilion.

On Saturday, fans will have the opportunity to donate gently used books to the Friends of the Davis Library. Aggie student-athletes with top fall quarter grade-point averages will be recognized at halftime of the game.

The Friday event finds the UCD men working in conjunction with several campus ministries, hundreds of students and community members to raise money through the childhood game of Knockout.

One of goals for the event, which begins at 6 p.m. at The Pavilion, is to break the world record of 571 people playing a game of “Knockout,” also known as “Bump.”

To accomplish this feat, another 200 people are needed. Students and supporters are encouraged to register for this event in advance by visiting http://catalystdavis.com/knockoutslavery or on the event’s Facebook page. Participants also can sign-up outside The Pavilion on the day of the event.

With each person bringing $10, organizers hope to donate more than $6,000 to the International Justice Mission, a human rights organization that investigates human trafficking.
