LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (UALR) - In honor of Veterans Days, the Department of Athletics has announced free admission to the UALR men's basketball season opener against North Florida on Monday, Nov. 11 at the Jack Stephens Center will be provided to anyone with past or present military affiliation. Presenting a current or past military ID will admit any person and up to four members of their immediate family.
The Trojans' home opener against North Florida kicks off a 2013-14 campaign that will see the team play seven games against 2013 NCAA Tournament opponents. Following the opener, UALR plays three consecutive road games against teams that advanced to the 2013 NCAA Tournament. The stretch begins with Florida, a team that won 29 games and advanced to last year's Elite Eight, in Gainesville on Nov. 16. Coming off 28 wins and an NCAA Tournament bid, Middle Tennessee awaits UALR just two days later in Murfreesboro. The Trojans end their three-game road stretch with 2013 SWAC Champion Southern in Baton Rouge on Nov. 22.
