The dinner gave each pair a chance to share personal information and stories before introducing one another at a short program for the public on the floor of the Knapp Center. The program allowed the faculty and the student-athletes to introduce each other to the crowd. The duos used fun, creative ways to present each other and give the audience a chance to get to know the student-athletes in a different way than what they see out on the basketball court.
