Four dollars can buy a lot of things. It can pay for a double dose of two-for-two candy deals at the convenience store, it can get 40 chicken nuggets at Burger King and it’s what a student can pay to get into an on-campus NSAA postseason event.

However, courtesy of KB Building Services, which is owned by a Westside alumnus, students will not be forced to pay that four dollars at Friday night’s district basketball games. DJ Rezac, owner of the business paying the admissions, said Friday that he wanted to make a kind gesture toward the Westside student body.

“Our school tells us to be kind,” Rezac said. “We love to help serve students.”

Rezac thought back to the varsity boys basketball game when the Warriors hosted Creighton Prep on January 15, and he said that he wanted to help recreate that atmosphere for both teams.

“I stole [Wired’s] picture of the Prep-Westside gym because I was so impressed with that,” Rezac said. “We have the best student body. Whether it’s Red Shield, whether it’s the cheerleaders, whether it’s show choir or our sports teams. We want to pack the gym.”

The night will tip off at 5:30 p.m. when the Westside girls basketball team takes on Millard West, who they are 1-1 on the season against, for a trip to the state tournament next weekend. The boys will follow at 8:00 p.m. when they host Millard South in the district A-6 semifinals. Student admission is free for both games.
