The Oakland basketball program hosted “Ugly Sweater Night” at Athletics Center Orena on Tuesday night and it delivered more than anyone could have ever imagined thanks to head coach Greg Kampe.
Kampe and his coaches all rocked some impressive numbers, but nothing stood out more than the Golden Grizzlies’ leading man.
The ugly Christmas sweater Kampe was wearing caught the eye of everyone in the arena, because it was really impossible to miss. After all, his sweater featured a stuffed reindeer head on the front and the reindeer’s rear sticking out the back.

It doesn’t get much better than that.
Unfortunately for Kampe, while he may have won the ugly Christmas sweater competition, his team fell to Northeastern, 61-59, after the Huskies hit a buzzer beater.
Oakland returns to action tonight against Michigan State at the Jack Breslin Student Events Center in East Lansing. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. ET on the Big Ten Network.
