Event Description

2019 Purple & Gold 45th Annual Men’s Basketball Tournament

The Purple & Gold Club will once again be sponsoring the 45th Annual 2019 Men’s Basketball Tournament at the Karl H. Weaner Community Center on the campus of Defiance College on November 15 and 16, 2019.  (Note:  This year’s tournament will be a Tip-Off Tournament rather than a Holiday Tournament.)

We appreciate your enthusiasm for Defiance College Athletics and are requesting your support as a “Patron” for the tournament. For $25, your name(s) will appear in the tournament program. These sponsorship donations, along with all the other tournament proceeds, will be used to help defray the costs associated with the tournament and the annual Swarm Awards which honors the outstanding academic and athletic accomplishments of those student-athletes who participated during the 2019-2020 academic year.
