The Imps were led by Cory Gensler's 30 points, 11 rebounds, and 6 assists as well as Donte Tatum's 24 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists. The court was littered with Toys for Tots after the Imps scored their first basket. It was really cool, so thank you for your support of a worthy cause. Have a safe and happy holiday and we'll see you back in the Imp Dome in 2015!

Here’s a great way to support your classroom teachers! (1) Ask your student to check their teachers’ white boards and bulletin boards for items they may need in the classroom. (2) You can check with the teachers yourself about items they may need in the classroom such as tissues, hand sanitizer, or things for labs. (3) What is the simplest option? All teachers can use tissues and hand sanitizers! Pick up a few extra on your next visit to Target/Walmart and make a teacher smile!!
