For the sixth year, North Idaho College will host a Special Needs Basketball Extravaganza Tuesday, Nov. 7, in Christianson Gym. The first game will tip off at 5:45 p.m. and the second game will tip off at 6:45 p.m. Player introductions begin at 5:30 p.m.

The extravaganza is a chance for our special needs athletes to experience the bright lights and wild atmosphere of a big time college basketball game. Athletes are introduced on the court with smoke machines and laser lights while being announced on the loudspeaker. NIC basketball players and coaches also help make it a special night for all the players.

“This is a fantastic way for NIC teams and the community to come out and honor our special needs athletes,” said Al Williams, NIC Athletics director. “It’s really a blast and fun for the whole family.”
