Friends of Air Force Basketball Men's Basketball Alumni Homecoming ReunionFebruary 8 - 9, 2008             All former Falcon players, coaches, and officer representatives were invited to the Third Annual Men’s Basketball Homecoming Reunion event February 8 - 9, 2008.  It was a great success.  This reunion was established to strengthen the bridge between the current players and those who built the program over the past 50 years.  Players from most every team have participated over the past 2 years. A  smaller group  this year but very enjoyable.              On Friday, Feb 8th, there was  an alumni game at noon and a reception in the evening. 'Youngster' from the alumni played in the game and some stayed to watch the team practice.  That evening there was  a reception with hors d’oeuvres at the Academy Hotel.  It was a good opportunity for the former players and other Falcon basketball supporters  to spend time together with the  coaches.            The main event of the reunion was the game on Saturday, Feb 9th, where the Falcons hosted the University of Utah Utes.  A great crowd watched a good game with our Falcons losing in a close matchup. At halftime, the reunion participants were introduced to the crowd, giving the fans a chance to thank them again for their many exciting past games in Clune Arena.  Former  coach Hal Walter , who recently left us, was honored at  halftime.           

            This event was sponsored by the Friends of Air Force Basketball.  Your support of the event was important to both former players and the current players and coaching staff and we thank those who participated.
