Pre-registration is encourage, so young fans can be paired up with a Santa Clara female student-athlete for the game. These buddies will meet prior to tip-off, at 6:30 p.m., and make posters together for when they hang out during the game, providing a glimpse into the world of Division I women's athletics. Juice and cookies will be served at halftime.
