NEO’s Annual Toilet Paper Game Set for Nov. 2nd

Updated:
MIAMI, OKLAHOMA -

Officials at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) are ordering over 600 rolls of toilet paper as they prepare for their first home basketball game. The annual NEO Toilet Paper Game is a tradition at NEO and celebrates the first point of the season. The TP game will be Wednesday, November 2, 2016, as the Golden Norsemen open up the season against Link Year Prep from Branson, Mo.

“This is a fourth year hosting this game and it is definitely one of our most popular games,” said Dustin Grover, head coach of the Golden Norsemen. “We receive a technical foul for the disturbance, but our fans have so much fun with it that I am willing to take. We have the toilet paper cleared in a matter of minutes, so it’s easy for our team to refocus on the game.”

Toilet paper games are traditional at schools around the nation and when NEO scores the first point of the season, the crowd will throw rolls of toilet paper onto the court. Rolls of toilet paper will be handed out after the Lady Norse game.

“Last year was my first year to experience something like this,” said Kingsley Obiekwe Sam, a sophomore basketball player from Madrid, Spain. “This year I want to be the one making that first basket.”
