UTPB Basketball to host inaugural Toy Toss

By  | 

ODESSA - The UTPB Men's basketball will host their inaugural Toy Toss on Monday, December 17th, in their game against Arlington Baptist at 7 P.M.

UTPB is asking fans and supporters to bring as many soft toys to the game, and throw the toys on the court once the Falcons score their first basket.

This idea was brought over by new head coach Josh Newman, who came up with the idea 8 years ago, while coaching at Arkansas- Fort Smith.

Since its existence, Newman have donated over 30,000 toys to local charities, including 8,000 last year. The toss has even made it on major news outlets like ESPN and CNN.

As Newman puts it, "Everything is bigger in Texas, so I hope we see that result in this year's Toy Toss".
