SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Sioux Falls O’Gorman and Sioux Falls Roosevelt will sport retro jerseys in this year’s Sanford Pentagon throwback games. The girls and boys varsity basketball teams will play on Heritage Court on Feb. 9.
The girls contest tips at 6:30 p.m., and the boys play at 8 p.m.
Both schools’ girls and boys junior varsity, sophomore and freshman squads will also tangle in afternoon and evening games on Heritage Court and auxiliary courts at the venue.
Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for students and $1 for senior citizens.
O’Gorman will wear green jerseys with “Cathedral” across the front, a nod to its history with St. Joseph Cathedral High School in Sioux Falls. Roosevelt’s white jerseys contain a simple maroon and gold trim and are reminiscent of the style of the ‘90s.
As part of the game-day experience, the Sanford Pentagon will feature “throwback” themes in the concessions stands, music and in-game promotions. Fans are also encouraged to dress in retro attire for a chance to win prizes throughout the game.
Fans can also bid on a chance to own a throwback jersey from each team via a silent auction available in the Pentagon lobby. Proceeds will benefit Ava’s House, a multi-generational, acute-level hospice facility that is a project of the Sanford Health Foundation.
