West Virginia University students are invited to watch the men’s basketball team defend the Big East Championship title on Wednesday (March 9) at the Mountainlair.

The Mountainlair, Coca-Cola and the Mountaineer Maniacs are sponsoring a game watch to be held in the ballrooms at 9 p.m. The game will be shown on the big screen and the opponent will be the winner of the Marquette-Providence game, played on Tuesday night.

Coca-Cola will donate a $150 gift card to the student who brings in the largest amount of empty Coca-Cola cans or bottles to be recycled. Recycling bins will be located at the entrance to the ballrooms.

The Mountaineer Maniacs will be providing free pizza to all students attending the event. In addition, they will plan a basketball trivia competition with prizes to be held during commercial breaks. A limited number of Mountaineer Maniacs t-shirts and rally rags will also be given out.

Coca-Cola will provide free soda for students attending the event, as well as t-shirts, hats, bookmarks and pens. Other prizes will be distributed at the game watch.
