An annual tradition with Laramie High School basketball is its alumni game, which takes place tonight in the main gymnasium at Laramie High School.

The basketball action features both Laramie High teams against a group of alumni. Action starts at 5:30 p.m. with the Lady Plainsmen facing the Alums in the first half. The Plainsmen will play the second half versus the Alumni. The combined score of the girls and boys will be counted against a mixed alumni squad.
There are over 20 former players representing four decades that will be playing for the Alumni team. The generations span the 80’s, 90’s, 2000’s and 2010’s.
The game is broken down into two 20-minute halves. The alumni will be able to substitute on the fly.
