The Illinois State women's basketball team will host North Dakota on Wednesday, Nov. 14 for the 2018-19 home opener and first ever Fansgiving night. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. and those in attendance will also receive a free rally towel while supplies last. The rally towel will feature the women's basketball 2018-19 theme - #TogetherWeWill.

Redbird women's basketball will be partnering with The School Street Food Pantry and will be collecting canned food items throughout the course of the game. The School Street Food Pantry is led by a group of passionate Illinois State students that seek to end food insecurity, which is derived from the idea of not knowing where the next meal is coming. More than 45 percent of Illinois State University students face some uncertainty when it comes to meals.

"It is so important for us to give back, not only to the local community, but our student body as well," said Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Vice President, and women's basketball student-athlete, Frannie Corrigan. "We are thankful for the support we receive from the students and see this as an excellent opportunity to directly impact our campus."
