BOSTON, MA - The popular hip hop and r&b radio station JAM'N 94.5 will team with metroPCS wireless cellular phone carrier to present the "Halftime Hookup" at the men's basketball game between University of Massachusetts Boston and visiting Eastern Connecticut State University on Saturday, February 6 at 3:00 p.m. at the Clark Athletic Center on the campus of UMass Boston.

JAM'N 94.5 will provide a deejay, while the JAM'N 94.5 Street Team will be handing out goodies consisting of compact discs, digital video discs, tickets and other prizes throughout the game.

JAM'N 94.5 will throw four t-shirts into the crowd at halftime of the game and the four individuals that come up with the t-shirts will be automatically selected to compete in the metroPCS Halftime Hookup. The four contestants will pair up and compete against each other by attempting to make as many free throws in 30 seconds as they can. The winner of each match-up will be determined by the most free throws made and receive free tickets to an event to be announced. They will then compete against each other in the finals and again try to sink as many free throws in a half minute to determine the champion. The winner will have the opportunity to win \$1,000 if he or she can successfully make a lay-up, a free throw, a three-point field goal and a halftime shot in 24 seconds or less.

Ticket prices are \$5 for adults, \$2 for students and admission is free for UMass Boston students with ID.
