Limited tickets available for USI-KWC showdown on Monday

A limited number of tickets are still available for the Dr. Martin Luther King holiday basketball showdown between the University of Southern Indiana and Kentucky Wesleyan College Monday evening.

Tip-off for the women's game is 5:15 p.m. with the men's game slated to begin at 7:30 p.m.

The men's match-up will be hotly contested with the Screaming Eagles ranked seventh and the Panthers moving into the second spot this week. This is the 18th time since 1992-93 that both teams enter the game ranked in the top 10 nationally.

Tickets are $10 adults; $9 seniors; and $5 non-USI students 17 & under, while admission is free for USI students with a valid University identification. For more information or to order tickets, call the USI Ticket Office at 812/465-7165.

In addition to the basketball games, USI students and employees are participating in several service activities in honor of Dr. King. These activities include a canned food drive at the basketball games that will benefit the Tri-State Food Bank and Lucas Place II (the new apartments for homeless veterans).

Fans are encouraged to bring non-perishable canned, boxed, or microwaveable foods; toothpaste; shaving cream; paper towels; dish soap; laundry detergent; and trash bags to donate before the game. USI student athletes will be assisting in the collection.
