Interim athletic director Jim Wooldridge and the Riverside City College basketball team’s hosted the inaugural Tiger Tip-off Luncheon on Oct. 29.
The luncheon was held in order to introduce this year’s members of the basketball programs and the college’s interim athletic director to RCC’s faculty and staff.
Wooldridge stated that while discussing ways of connecting the programs to people on the campus like students, faculty and community members with women’s basketball coach Alicia Berber and men’s basketball coach Philip Mathews, they came up with the concept of the luncheon.
While attendees were entered into a raffle for a chance to win prizes like RCC basketball shirts, what they took from the luncheon was much greater.
Inspirational speeches by RCC sports hall of famers Sam D. Knight and Mike Barnes, ignited the crowd and players alike.
