Congratulations to the Men’s Basketball team.  After a great season the Cats
will next defend their title of America East Champions at home in Patrick
Gymnasium at 11:30AM Saturday, March 13th.  Residential Life is working hard in
order to postpone move out for spring break until after the game so that
residential students will still be able to attend the game, I will send a
follow-up as soon as I know.  Tickets are available Tuesday at the Patrick Gym
Ticket Office only; they are on sale from 9AM-430PM for $8.  Each student can
purchase up to 2 tickets; tickets for the general public will go on sale
Wednesday.  Be sure to get your ticket early and support the Cats on their
second consecutive bid for the conference championship.
Prior to the game the Athletics Department will be sponsoring a free Basketball
Brunch and Pep Rally in front of the Patrick Gym starting at 9AM, come early to
get psyched for the game, enjoy music and free food!

Alpha Phi Omega, APO (national co-ed service fraternity), will be setting up
donation boxes throughout dorms (and possibly the library) on campus during the

of as they clean out for spring break.  We'll be donating all the received
items to either Salvation Army or a shelter in the area.  Some locations of
boxes are Trinity campus main desk, L/L fireplace lounge or main desk, Buckham
