NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. – Bucky the mascot is known for getting the Charleston Southern student section hyped up or greeting the younger fans at sporting events, but the mascot made an unscheduled appearance at the Lady Bucs’ basketball practice Thursday.
Shanihai Green is the new manager for the team and she thought she was getting a “welcome to the team” introduction with Bucky when head coach Fred Applin gathered the team around and had Green introduce herself.
She revealed personal details about her family. Shanihai’s father is overseas serving in the U.S. Air Force, or so she thought. That’s when Bucky removed his headgear, revealing the surprise of Shanihai’s life.
