SAGU continues snowstorm tradition

In 2011 Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) began a new tradition called the SAGU Snowstorm. This year's snowstorm took place on Tuesday, Nov. 6, at 7:30 p.m. during the first home game of the season against Dallas Christian University.

On Tuesday night, fans launched more than 3,000 ping-pong balls onto the court to celebrate the first home basket of the season. Cheerleaders, players and other volunteers cleared the ping-pong balls from the court, and the referees enforced an administrative technical foul against the Lions.

Head Men’s Basketball Coach Donnie Bostwick said, "We believe the risk of suffering a technical foul is worth the reward of pulling more fans to the game."


Bostwick recognizes traditions as some of the most enjoyable moments of college athletics. He shared, "My wife had mentioned to my kids that it rarely snows in Texas. That triggered the idea of throwing ping-pong balls. It is harmless, but still has a pretty cool effect. Plus, it’s a great marketing tool to get fans out to see our first game."
