BALTIMORE, MD – The Johns Hopkins men’s and women’s basketball teams, in conjunction with Blue Jays Unlimited, announce the slate of events for the 11th annual Basketball Alumni Celebration. A number of events are scheduled for January 27 and 28, 2012 as the Blue Jays welcome back alumni to the Homewood Campus.
Friends and family of Matt O’Mahony and Glen Wall inaugurated the Wall-O’Mahony reception in February 2002, following Matt’s and Glen’s deaths in the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Former classmates, teammates, friends, and family members created an enduring legacy for these two beloved Class of 1984 alumni with generous gifts to renovate and name the men’s basketball locker room and to endow scholarship and basketball program funds in their names. The group, together with the entire Hopkins basketball community, now gathers annually to celebrate the basketball program at a reception in Matt’s and Glen’s names. In addition to the Wall-O’Mahony reception held during Alumni Basketball Weekend, awards are presented at the conclusion of the varsity men’s game to the most valuable players from Hopkins and the visiting team. The goal of the weekend’s events is to celebrate Matt’s and Glen’s legacies and encourage the kind of friendships and team camaraderie that they enjoyed.
