LAS CRUCES, N.M. (Oct. 22)-Before the 2012-13 season begins, the New Mexico State men's basketball team is hosting a Sixth Man Club Tip-Off Dinner, Oct. 30, at the Pan American Center.
The banquet begins at 6 p.m. with dinner and a program. The Aggies are having a special guest speaker coach Herman Boon, who was the inspiration for the movie 'Remember the Titans.' Event reservations for both VIP tables and individual tickets, which are $100 per person, can be made by calling 575-646-1447.
Operating under the auspices of NM State athletics and the NM State Foundation, the Sixth Man Club raises funds to help cover costs for men's basketball recruiting, travel, equipment and scholarships.
The Aggies open the 2012-13 season on the road at Oregon State, Nov. 11, in Corvallis, Ore., before returning home to host Southeastern Louisiana, Nov. 15.
