(New Orleans, La.) The Dillard University men's basketball team will host a "Bleu & White game" on Thursday, October 1 to showcase the new look Bleu Devils as DU President Dr. Walter Kimbrough along with DU Athletic Director Dr. Kiki Baker Barnes both headline as guest coaches. The purpose of this historic event at the Battlefield in Dent Hall is to gather canned goods, non-perishable food items or any item such as towels or toiletries that may be used to feed and assist 150 families for Thanksgiving. The goods will be used as an entry fee to the contest.
"We want to do as much as possible to make an impact in the community and feed as many families as we can," said Bleu Devils head coach Mike Newell. He is responsible for creating this spectacular event.
President Kimbrough is excited to coach in his first ever Bleu & White game and he is happy to accept the challenge and opportunity to coach against his colleague.
"I have no experience coaching, I'm working with a squad I don't know and plays I have not seen," said Dr. Kimbrough. "If we win, I'm firing the AD!"
Tip-off is set for 7:00 p.m. For a list of the Bleu Devils basketball team, click here.
