UT President Lloyd Jacobs and his wife, Ola, are hosting a Rocket Roundball Social on the main floor of Savage Arena Thursday, Oct. 18, from 6 to 8 p.m.

All proceeds from the event will go directly to The University of Toledo Men’s Basketball Progress Fund.

The Rocket Roundball Social, which is an event that has grown into a UT basketball tradition, offers individuals the opportunity to meet Head Coach Tod Kowalczyk, his staff and players while an assortment of great food from Toledo-area restaurants is served.

Kowalczyk is entering his third season at UT’s helm and orchestrated a dramatic turnaround in the Rockets’ 2011-12 campaign. UT registered the second-largest turnaround in NCAA Division I Basketball last year by compiling a 19-17 win-loss mark and advancing to post-season play for the first time in five years. The Rockets will return all but one letterwinner from last season’s squad, including second-team All-Mid American Conference honoree Rian Pearson and MAC Freshman of the Year Julius Brown.

Silent and live auctions will be held during the evening; items available for purchase include a Road trip with the Rockets, All-Access Program Pass for a Game, Toledo basketball apparel and assorted memorabilia.

Advance ticket options include:

• Individual ticket for $75;

• A reserved table of 10 for $1,000; and

• Center Circle membership for $2,500; this includes a reserved table of 10, a 2012-13 Toledo Rockets autographed basketball, special recognition and signage at event.

Payments can be made with cash, credit card or check. Checks should be made payable to the UT Foundation.

Reserve tickets by email at or phone 419.530.4796.
