2011-12 Basketball Slogan: “Defining Our Legacy”

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – St. Bonaventure Athletic Department officials unveiled the winning slogan for the 2011-12 basketball season on Tuesday: "Defining Our Legacy."

The winner of the contest is SBU senior Spencer Timkey, whose original submission of "St. Bonaventure Basketball: Define Your Legacy" was altered slightly.

The "Defining Our Legacy" slogan captures an on-going theme for the much-anticipated men’s and women’s basketball seasons as both teams look to build further upon past success. The "Our" portion of the slogan includes both players and fans alike; players to write their legacy and fans to help write that legacy through their support and attendance at the Reilly Center each game night.

Timkey’s slogan will be used across multiple mediums – print ads, TV commercials, radio spots, billboards, etc. – throughout the season. Additionally, he will receive four tickets and four Hall of Fame passes for a game of his choice.

More than 50 submissions were sent to the athletics Twitter account (@Go_Bonnies) and Facebook page (St. Bonaventure Athletics), and department officials would like to thank all fans for their creative ideas.

The basketball season will kick off with Brown & White Night, a midnight-madness style event, at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15. An exhibition doubleheader is set for Friday, Nov. 4, while the men’s home opener is slated for Nov. 11 against Cornell. The women open the home portion of their season Nov. 20 opposite Morgan State.
