Coach Chris Mack Hosts First 2021-22 "Game Day" Program Pre-KSU

October 29, 2021, Louisville, KY 
- Just before UofL’s first game day of the 2021-22 season – an exhibition match against Kentucky State -- men’s head basketball coach Chris Mack hosted his own first “Game Day” event of 2021-22 season for local students. The second in a series of four "Game Days" was a week later, prior to the West Georgia exhibition game. Partnering again with Louisville schools and launched in 2019 just prior to Covid-19 lockdowns, the program is relatively new.An extension of a considerable existing commitment to inner-city schools by the Mack Family Foundation, "Game Days" are a response to financial constraints that had eliminated non-athletic incentive programs in several Title I elementary schools throughout Louisville.  Mack stepped-in with the concept after having heard that rewards were cut for students demonstrating crucial achievement traits such as: 

- good attendance
- sportsmanship
- positive behavior
- academic achievement

 "These traits are critically important to have, and these kids deserve to be recognized," said Mack.   This season will be the first full-program implementation.

Counting down to the night’s big game together, Coach Mack, ten elementary students and their chaperones shared a couple of hours of fun, education and encouragemen
t to thrive -- both academically and in life.   The meet-and-greet with Mack at Yum! Center was followed by a casual Q&A session and tour of the Cards’ practice gym facilities.  A formal “photo opp” session, filled with laughs and posing was also coordinated by the Mack Foundation, along with autographed basketballs for each student, and tickets to the night’s game for themselves and their chaperone.
