The new floor in the arena of the Athletics-Recreation Center will officially be dedicated as Homer Drew Court in a pregame ceremony prior to Saturday night’s Valparaiso men’s basketball exhibition opener against Olivet Nazarene, scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start.
The court dedication ceremony will feature remarks from Valparaiso University President Mark Heckler, as well as appearances by many of Drew’s former players. Fans who are unable to make it to the ARC can watch the dedication ceremony, as well as the game, live through the Horizon League Network at www.valpoathletics.com.
Following the pregame ceremony, the Crusaders will take to the court for their first competition of the 2010-2011 season. Valpo returns ten letterwinners, including four starters, from last year’s squad, which finished in a tie for fourth place in the Horizon League standings. Tickets are available now on location at the ticket office, located directly inside the main entrance of the ARC, by phone at 1-877-MY-VU-TIX or online at http://bit.ly/9848VZ.
