New Orleans – The Dillard University men’s basketball team will host its second annual “Bleu & White Game” tonight at 7:00 p.m. at the Battlefield in Dent Hall to showcase the nation’s number one ranked team in the NAIA according to a recent Sporting News poll.
President Dr. Walter M. Kimbrough and Athletic Director Dr. Kiki Baker Barnes will both headline as guest coaches.
The purpose of this second annual “Bleu and White Game” is to gather toiletries for flood victims in Baton Rouge and the surround areas. The items 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 help as many families as we can,” said Bleu Devils head coach Mike Newell. He is responsible for creating this spectacular event. In last year’s inaugural game, Team Bleu (Dr. Barnes) defeated Team White (Dr. Kimbrough) by just two points.
