The University of Toledo will host “Tricks, Treats and Dunks,” presented by Paramount Advantage, a special basketball season preview, Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 6 p.m. in Savage Arena. Admission is free.

The evening will begin with trick-or-treating for kids from 6 to 7 p.m. at stations located on the arena concourse, and pumpkin decorating and a haunted house inside the Fetterman Practice Gym. Fans can dress in their Halloween costumes and get treats and prizes.

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

At 7 p.m., the fun moves onto the recently redesigned Nichols Court, where a contest for best Halloween costumes will be judged. Prizes will be given out to best costumes for children.

Following the Halloween costume contest, the 2019-20 women’s and men’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 UToledo student and a fan. The event will conclude with a slam-dunk contest by the men’s team.

Fans can purchase snacks from the concession stands as they watch the action and listen to music by a DJ.

In conjunction with “Tricks, Treats and Dunks,” the Residence Hall Association will host its annual Halloween Walk. Children and families will have the opportunity for more trick-or-treating in the residence halls following the conclusion of the event in Savage Arena.

The UToledo Athletic Ticket Office will be open during the event for fans who wish to purchase season tickets or who want more information about tickets. Fans also can go to the UToledo Ticket Central website or call 419.530.GOLD (4653).
