Swish! STOTS Beats SVOTS 61-60 in Annual Hoop Rivalry
May 6, 2011 • Off-campus Event
On Friday, basketball teams and fans from St. Vladimir's and St. Tikhon's seminaries traveled to the Stamford Athletic Club in Connecticut to compete in their annual face off. St. Tikhon's (STOTS) beat St. Vladimir's (SVOTS) in an evenly matched rivalry—61 to 60—despite a valiant effort by Dn. John Cox, who drained a 3-point jumper for SVOTS in the last seconds of the game. Afterwards, players and fans met at Archangels Greek Orthodox Church in Stamford, for pizza and fellowship in the parish hall. We thank Fr. Harry Pappas, proistamenos at Archangels parish and adjunct professor of Pastoral Theology at St. Vladimir's, and his parishioners for hosting and feeding both teams!
We Tweeted these highlights from the sidelines last week:
Both teams are warming up for the annual SVOTS v STOTS basketball game - hosted by Fr Harry Pappas' parish. Thank you!
SVOTS has new uniforms but STOTS look hungry - should be a great game!

SVOTS surge against spirited STOTS - game could go either way

Judging by the halftime activity, SVOTS should start playing some of the 30 or so SVOTS kids who are here to cheer on their team.
