BURNSVILLE, Minn. -- Bemidji State University men’s and women’s basketball will participate in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference’s 10th annual “It’s a Slam Dunk, Don’t Drive Drunk” campaign Jan. 28-29 during its games against Augustana University and Wayne State College.
Started in 2013, the campaign commemorates Drake Bigler, the five-month-old son of Southwest Minnesota State University’s Men’s Basketball Head Coach Brad Bigler, who was killed by a drunk driver.
BSU’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will be on-site to raise awareness about drunk driving and to encourage others to not drive impaired.
Bemidji State and the NSIC encourages fans to support this effort and to always drive responsibly.
The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) serves as the primary governance arm representing student-athlete interests in Division II affairs. SAAC members serve as student-athlete liaisons that monitor and discuss happenings on campuses, within conference and at the national level. For additional information, visit NorthernSun.org/SAAC.
