The Ohio Valley University Athletic Department will host an alumni weekend for all former women’s basketball players, coaches and their families October 28-29, 2016 on the main campus in Vienna, W.Va. The weekend will be hosted by OVU Head Women’s Basketball Coach Jazmone Turner and OVU Athletic Director Chad Porter.

“We are thrilled to welcome back all former Ohio Valley University and Northeastern Christian Junior College (NCJC) women’s basketball players to what will surely be an outstanding weekend of fun and camaraderie,” said Turner. “The weekend will begin on Friday afternoon in the Alumni Gymnasium on the main campus and will include a variety of skills challenges, a 3-point shooting contest and dinner,” Turner said. Ohio Valley University consolidated with NCJC in Villanova, Pa., in the early 1990s.

“Special highlights of the weekend will include the “Legends” breakfast on Saturday, and a group community service project. An important part of our mission at Ohio Valley University is service to God and humanity. We shared that as students and we’ll have a chance to do that again as alumni—coming together again as part of a team to make a difference in our community,” Turner said.

The group plans to visit the Latrobe Street Mission in Parkersburg. Current OVU basketball players and alumni will serve meals, sort clothing, and provide any assistance needed at the facility that day.

The weekend schedule of events is as follows:
