JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Head Coach Matt Daniel and the Arkansas State women’s basketball program joined fans and their families at the Lost Pizza Co. on Hilltop for Pizza With The Pack Monday.

Dozens of A-State fans grabbed a slice and learned more about the team.

Head Coach Matt Daniel was there interacting with the fans and answering any questions those in attendance had.

Matt Daniel: “We’re trying to establish some traditions, I really feel like we’re starting year one with COVID happening and the way that the recruiting process has been, so we’re honored to have Pizza with the Pack,” Daniel said. “This is what I know, I grew up here so I know this is a basketball area and people are starving for women’s basketball, even at Arkansas State with traditions they have, so we’re thankful to be a part of that. With all the things -- and I feel like I’m wearing a lot of hats right now -- but with all the things that we’re doing, I think it’s just building something that can be pretty special here, in a place that’s dear to me for sure.”

New to the A-State women’s basketball program, Pizza with the Pack gives fans the opportunity to chat with the team, win prizes, find out the latest on the team from Coach Daniel and enjoy pizza from Lost Pizza. At the end of the event, Daniel will open the floor to questions.

The first of the three scheduled dates is set for 6 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 8, with the other two dates being Nov. 29 and Dec. 13 at the same time.

Kids 12 and under eat free and A-State students will receive a discount at Pizza with the Pack. The Hilltop location of Lost Pizza Co. is located at 3410 East Johnson Ave.
