Wake Forest University and Xavier University have agreed on a 10-year basketball series starting next season that will be known as the Skip Prosser Classic.
Prosser was the head coach at Xavier from 1994-2001 and at Wake Forest from 2001 until his death in 2007. His legacy remains strong at each school.
The 10-year series will begin during the 2009-10 season with the first game scheduled to be played at Wake Forest. Over the course of the series, five games will be played at Wake and five at Xavier. The exact dates have yet to be determined and will be announced at a later time.
Well I am certainly excited about this series. Not only with this be an entertaining basketball series between the Demon Deacons and a consistently good Xavier team, but it will be held in the memory of beloved coach Skip Prosser. Congratulations to both schools for working together to get this done.
