Dates set for pair of Red/White scrimmages

Two Red/White scrimmages? On board.

Here's the release:

The University of Louisville will stage two opportunities for a preseason look at the 2011-12 Cardinals in a pair of Red-White intrasquad men's basketball scrimmages in the KFC Yum! Center on Friday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m.

The first scrimmage coincides with the first official day of practice for college basketball. The Oct. 22 scrimmage is in concert with U of L's "Return to the Nest" Homecoming on Main festivities, which will include activities on the Norton Healthcare Plaza of the KFC Yum! Center prior to the game.

Tickets, priced at $10 for lower arena seats and $5 for upper arena seats, will go on sale beginning at 9 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 23 at both U of L Ticket Offices, located near Gate 2 of Papa John's Cardinal Stadium off Floyd Street; and on the third floor of the Swain Student Activities Center. Both locations are open weekdays from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Tickets will also be sold, if available, before and during the Cardinals' next two home football games against Marshall on Oct. 1 and Rutgers on Oct. 21.

Cardinal fans may also purchase tickets by visiting Ticketmaster online, calling 1-800-745-3000 or by visiting any Ticketmaster Ticket Center, including statewide Kroger locations. Convenience fees are applied with Ticketmaster orders. Further information can be obtained by calling the U of L ticket office at (502) 852-5863.

U of L will welcome back three starters and 10 lettermen from its 2010-11 squad, as well as adding a stellar recruiting class for the upcoming season. The Cardinals exceeded expectations last season by tying for third in the BIG EAST Conference, earning 20 wins for their ninth-straight season (25-10 record), reaching the title game of the BIG EAST Championship, defeating seven Top 25 teams and rising to as high as 11th in both the AP and ESPN/USA Today polls.
