The men received a bye to the quarterfinals and will take on Eastern Michigan Thursday, March 12, at 6:30 p.m. in Quicken Loans Arena.

Pre-game parties will begin two hours prior to tipoff at Harry Buffalo, 2120 E. 4th St., Cleveland, just across the street from the arena.

A member of the UT coaching staff and the UT band and cheerleaders will be at the pre-game event. In the past, the all-you-can-eat menu has featured pizza, chicken sandwiches, fried fish, crab cakes, fried ravioli, garden salad, chicken tenders and more, as well as soft drinks. The menu will change from game to game. A cash bar will be available.

Admission to the party is $12 per person. Reservations are not required; walk-ins are welcome.

The UT Alumni Foundation also is offering bus trip packages for Friday and Saturday if the Toledo teams win and advance. The package includes a game ticket, bus ride, tolls, bus driver tip and the pre-game party. Cost for the women’s game will be $48, and the price for the men’s game will be $75. For those who have tickets to the games, that cost will be deducted from the package price.

Check-in for buses will be at Rocket Hall five hours prior to the scheduled tip.
