The women of the Delta Zeta sorority and men of Delta Sigma Phi fraternity took the win in the Greek Week basketball tournament this past weekend. The team narrowly edged out Phi Mu and Pi Kappa Alpha with a score of 41-40.
The game remained a tight throughout with multiple lead changes. A final shot by one of the Delta Sigma Phi players sealed the win for their team. At the buzzer, both organizations rushed the floor to celebrate the victory.
The basketball tournament was a last minute change in the Greek Week festivities due to the weather. The teams had originally been scheduled to play softball.
Each sorority was paired with a fraternity for the tournament, which took most of the day.
“It got sprung on us at 2 o’clock yesterday that we were going to be playing basketball, so we had no time to practice,” said Jennifer Jacobs, freshman Delta Zeta. “[The win] really means a lot and coming out today and just killing it is a really good feeling.”
Despite the change of plans, there was still plenty of support from Greek Life at the events. Hundreds of students poured into the Wellness and Recreation Center to cheer on their teams.
“Even though we didn’t win, it was still really cool to watch and just see all of Greek Life come together,” said Olivia Moesser, senior economics major and AOII member.
