Madison, Wis. - Fans heading to Indiana for the first and second rounds of the 2010 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament are encouraged to join fellow Wisconsin fans for two official Badger fan events scheduled for the weekend. Admission to both events is free.
The UW Band, UW Spirit Squad and Bucky Badger will provide the entertainment when the tournament weekend begins on Saturday night. Fans are encouraged to gather at 7 p.m. ET at the Main Street Pub for the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament Tip-off Party.
The Main Street Pub is located near the Notre Dame campus at 2046 S. Bend Ave. The first 50 fans in attendance will receive a Wisconsin t-shirt courtesy of adidas. Other great door prizes to be awarded throughout the night include an autographed Lisa Stone basketball and official Wisconsin Athletics adidas gear. The Main Street Pub has pub-style food and beverages available for purchase with nearly 40 televisions tuned to NCAA tournament action.
On Sunday morning, fans are invited to attend the Team Send Off at 10 a.m. ET in the lobby of the Hilton Garden Inn. Fans can join the UW Band, UW Spirit Squad and Bucky Badger to cheer on the Badgers as they depart for Notre Dame's Joyce Center to battle Vermont in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Fans will receive free pom-poms and Wisconsin beads while supplies last.
As the tournament progresses, additional fan events may be added throughout the weekend. Fans are encouraged to sign up to follow BadgerWBBall or uwbadgersdotcom on Twitter to receive the latest updates.
