CONWAY, S.C. – The Coastal Carolina University men’s and women’s basketball teams participated in the Hoopla 09 basketball event at Kimbel Arena Oct. 19. The event was to get Chanticleers fans fired up for the upcoming 2009-10 men’s and women’s basketball season.
The event started with the Taste of Coastal, which featured local restaurants throughout the Grand Strand. Rotelli’s won the event, which was decided on a fan vote. In Kimbel Arena, a step show and balloon stomp for cash preceded the introductions of the teams.
