The University of the District of Columbia is observing its annual Homecoming Week with the theme "I Am UDC", and a broad range of activities, including the UDC Women's Basketball Thanksgiving Classic on Saturday, and Sunday November 20 and 21. Also on Saturday, at 6 p.m., the UDC Firebirds Men's Basketball Team will play the Mansfield University Mountaineers in the UDC Sports Complex.

The Firebird Women will host three schools in the two day tournament, beginning on Saturday at 1 p.m., when the Georginian Court University Lions take the court against the St. Paul's College Tigers. It is fitting that the Lions will be led by UDC graduate and Head Coach Valarie Curtis during Homecoming Week.

At 3p.m., the Firebird Women will play the Cheyney University Wolves, continuing a long tradition of basketball competition between the two schools.

This will be an exciting weekend of basketball and the University looks forward to its alumni, fans, friends and supporters returning to support their home team.

All games will be played in the UDC Sports Complex, located at 4200 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Washington, DC. Games will also be broadcasted over the internet and may be heard by clicking on the "Listen Now" link.
