This past weekend Delta State President William N. LaForge and Christian Brothers University President Dr. John Smarrelli Jr. met through a friendly free throw shooting contest at halftime of the Statesmen versus Buccaneers basketball game at CBU in Memphis.

Delta State’s presence in the Memphis and DeSoto County areas has been a focus of the university in recruitment efforts so far this year. President LaForge has visited area high schools accompanied by admissions’ team members, and the Alumni Association chapters have concentrated energy to assist in recruiting prospective students in their area.

The president’s shooting match provided halftime entertainment that excited the crowd.
