The men's and women's basketball teams from Rochester College will each begin their season Oct. 17-20 by hosting the first annual Travis Bass Classic to help raise money for ALS, also referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease.
According to information submitted by the Rochester College athletic department, the tournament is being held to honor Travis Bass, who was a college teammate and friend of Rochester College men's basketball coach Klint Pleasant, and passed away from ALS.
Proceeds from ticket and t-shirts sales will go towards ALS awareness.
A representative from the ALS is expected to be at the tournament.
