Oakland, CMU to play hurricane-relief game

October 24, 2017 GMT

Oakland University and Central Michigan are joining the fundraising campaign for hurricane-relief efforts under way in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.

The men’s basketball teams, which had been set to scrimmage Sunday, now are opening the game to the public at the O’Rena on Oakland’s campus in Rochester.

The game will start at 1 p.m., and the cost will be $10 for open seating.

Oakland students still get in free, but have been asked to donate a “couple bucks” by Oakland coach Greg Kampe.

Michigan State and Georgia will play a hurricane-relief exhibition at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids on Sunday. Last week, Kansas and Missouri played an exhibition that raised more than $1.8 million.
