The University of Toledo basketball teams will host “Tricks, Treats and Dunks,” a special season preview presented by Paramount Advantage, Wednesday, Oct. 25, at 6 p.m. in Savage Arena. Admission is free.

The evening will begin with kids being able to trick-or-treat from 6 to 7 p.m. at stations located in the arena concourses, or they can decorate pumpkins or visit a haunted house inside the Fetterman Gym. Fans can dress in their Halloween costumes and get treats and prizes.

Free schedule posters also will be provided for fans to get autographs from UT men’s and women’s basketball players.

At 7 p.m., the fun will move onto Nichols Court, where a contest for best Halloween costume will be judged. Prizes will be given out to best costumes for children. There also will be raffle prizes for both fans and UT students throughout the night.

Following the Halloween costume contest, the 2017-18 UT men’s and women’s basketball teams will be introduced. The Rockets will participate in a game of Knockout that will feature players from both teams, a Kids Club member, a UT student and a fan. The event will conclude with a slam-dunk contest for the men’s team.

A Halloween walk also will be provided by UT Residence Life leaders at approximately 7:45 p.m. for children interested in trick-or-treating at various residence halls.
