Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students.

The Sports Corporation president says there is a lot of excitement about hosting this year’s showcase in the new arena.

“You see all of the participants walk through the doors, their eyes light up when they get their first look at this arena,” explains Eric Marvin, Evansville Sports Corporation. “It’s a little bit of an intimate arena. So you’re a little bit closer to the floor. So seating is going to be great. It’s going to be a really neat feel in here for Friday, Saturday, and Tuesday.”
