KOKOMO, Ind. — Fans of the Indiana University Kokomo men’s basketball team can meet the players and coaches at a “Meet the Cougars” night Wednesday, February 8 at Harvey Hinklemeyers.
Coach Jace Thompson said the team and mascot Kingston Cougar would be at the restaurant, 1554 S. Dixon Road, from 6 to 9 p.m. He encouraged fans to bring their game tickets, which each include a coupon for three free breadsticks. Harvey Hinklemeyers is the team’s ticket sponsor for its inaugural season.
Thompson plans more community outreach for his team, as they build a fan base in north central Indiana.
“This is a way for people to get to know our guys off the court, so they have an investment in seeing our team be successful,” he said.
The Cougars (4-11) play their next game at 7 p.m. Thursday, February 9 at home against Grace College.
Indiana University Kokomo serves north central Indiana.
