NIU Alumni Day Basketball Doubleheader

Cram the Convo NIU Basketball Double Header Saturday, Feb. 24

Saturday, Feb. 24

The NIU men's and women's basketball teams are holding their annual "Cram the Convo" doubleheader starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24, at the NIU Convocation Center.

In conjunction with the event, we are holding our Alumni Day and hope to "Cram the Convo" with our alumni.

Alumni Day will be held between games from 2-4 p.m. in the South Lobby and will feature a short program, snacks, hot chocolate and raffles.  

Enter the South Lobby by door #4 or from the south side of the arena.

We have secured a special ticket price for our alumni, which includes both games for $5. The women's basketball team will tip off against Bowling Green at 1 p.m., and the men's basketball game against Ohio will begin at 3:30 p.m.

Purchase your $5 tickets here for the women's basketball game. These tickets will also be honored at the men's basketball game. 


*Note the tickets say Women’s Basketball, but you can attend BOTH games on the doubleheader days if you have a ticket to one or the other. These tickets are good for anywhere in the lower bowl except for sections 103, 112, and 113 for the women’s game, and the lower GA sections 115-118 for the men’s game.
