Youngsters hold winter tip off at Monroe

By Gary Axelbank

BRONX, NEW YORK, November 28- The Monroe Mustangs will honor the Jr. Huguenots, the youth teams that represent New Rochelle in the Tri-County Basketball League, with two special nights of basketball at the MAC (Monroe Athletic Complex) during this weekend's 2012 Mustangs Winter Tip-off Invitational. 

On Friday nights at 8:00 p.m. it is the men's game between Monroe and Central Florida. On Saturdays at 4:00 p.m. it is the men's showdown between the Mustangs and Hagerstown, and Saturday's 6:00pm women's match between Monroe and rival Harcum. Members of the Jr. Huguenots will be treated to free admission, exclusive chances at half-time prizes made possible by Modell’s and Steiner Sports Memorabilia and personal autograph sessions with the Mustangs after the games. 

"This is our way of honoring young people who are staying in school and doing their best on the basketball court," said Director of Sports Development and Information Gary Axlebank. "Supporting the local community has been a part of the Monroe College legacy for almost 80 years and now that we have this gorgeous facility in downtown New Rochelle this is another way that we can keep those commitments strong."

Beginning with the Thanksgiving weekend just past, this is the second year that the Jr. Huguenots are using the MAC for their practices and games. The Jr. Huguenots, who are part of the New Rochelle Basketball Association, have full-use of the facility, including the electronic scoreboards and Monroe game personnel so that the games are operated at a quality level. 

New Rochelle Basketball Association is the parent organization of both the Jr Huguenots and the “Purple Basketball Club”, the booster club of New Rochelle High School.
