Associate professor of health, physical education and exercise science Ross Friesen’s facility management class sponsored a 3-on-3 basketball game in Lee Arena last Monday.
However, the $5 per person entry fee did not garner much interest, so a few male students played a series of 5-on-5 games against the Lady Blues basketball team.
“It was a physical game – very tiring,” said Anthony Ditch, senior sports management major who played the entirety of the games. “They are a pretty good team. They are in good shape and very agressive.”
Games went to 11 points by one and two-point baskets – enough to tire the guys out.
“Especially after that first game, I was dead,” said Ditch.
Despite the exhausting and physical nature of the game, it was no more than a fun pick-up game worth doing again.
“It was a fun game,” he added. “I’d like to do it again.”
