Jesuit Basketball Spotlight

by Jim Manney

The Jesuit colleges and universities in the U.S. play each other dozens of times on the basketball court this season. Full schedule here. The Jesuit Basketball Spotlight program takes these games as a opportunity for a soft promotion of Jesuit education and mission.  Some version of this announcement will be read at most if not all of these games:

Tonight’s matchup between X and X is just one of more than 90 games this season  between teams from the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities across the United States. Each  of the 28 is dedicated to strong academics and teaching women and men to serve others  and live a faith that does justice.

Grounded in a 500-year tradition, Jesuit, Catholic higher education creates bright futures  for its more than 200,000 students in the United States.

Alumni at the game tonight are just some of the more than 1.7 million Jesuit graduates  in America who are leaders locally, nationally and internationally. [Name of institution]  and its fellow Jesuit institutions thank you for your attendance tonight, and for believing  in the Jesuit mission.
