Inaugural Courtwarming Planned at WWU Feb. 2

With the beginning of men’s basketball at William Woods University this year, students are introducing what they hope will become a tradition—a Courtwarming.


Voting is under way to elect a King and Queen and their Court for WWU’s Inaugural Courtwarming. Events are planned this week to encourage school spirit, leading to the finale—the Courtwarming Saturday (Feb. 2).


Sponsored by the Student Alumni Council, Courtwarming activities include a bonfire Thursday and pep rally Friday. Coronation of the Court will occur Saturday between the women’s basketball game, which is scheduled at 2 p.m., and the men’s basketball game, which is set to tip off at 4 p.m., both in the Helen Stephens Sports Complex.
