For the third straight year thanks to the support of local banks and the Alamosa Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Adams State College men’s and women’s basketball teams will have an opportunity to entertain their home crowd for the first time this season as the Grizzlies host the Adams State Bankers Classic this weekend in Plachy Hall.
A total of eight games- four men’s and four women’s- will be played over the two days as the Grizzlies welcome six visiting teams from five different states for what should be some good early season action.  The generous support of the ACVB, 1st Southwest Bank, Alamosa State Bank and San Luis Valley Federal Bank is footing the bill for the hotel rooms for the visiting teams, which like their fans, are sure to spend money in the community throughout their stay.
Action begins at 1 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday.  The Grizzly women, picked to win the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference title, play each night at 6 p.m. while the new-look ASC men’s squad will play both nights at 8 p.m.
Ne Mexico Highlands, Oakwood (Ala.) and Tennessee Temple will join the Grizzly men in the 4-team classic-style format affair while Cameron (Okla.), Northern New Mexico and Western State round on the women’s field.
Friday’s schedule begins with a 1 p.m. men’s match-up between New Mexico Highlands and Oakwood.  The Cameron and Western State women will then do battle at 3 p.m. while the Grizzly women will face Northern New Mexico.  The Grizzly men then cap the first day with a tilt against Tennessee Temple.
Saturday’s slate will begin with a women’s contest between Northern New Mexico and Cameron.  The New Mexico Highlands and Tennessee Temple men will then square off at 3 p.m.  The ASC women and men will then play Cameron and Oakwood, respectively.
Tickets are also a bargain and are just $6 adults, $4 for students and $2 for children per day for an all-day pass allowing fans to watch up to four games.  As is normally the case, ASC students and Grizzly Club members will be admitted free with a valid ID. is powered by WordPress µ | Spam prevention powered by Akismet
