The Toledo men’s and women’s basketball programs will hold special opening-weekend promotions Friday and Saturday, Nov. 10 and 11, in Savage Arena.

The women’s team will open their regular season against Saint Francis (Pa.) in the first round of the Preseason WNIT Friday at 7 p.m., while the men’s program will host Saint Joseph’s Saturday at 7 p.m.

In observance of Veteran’s Day Nov. 10, active duty or retired military veterans will receive free admission to both games with military ID. Along with that, military members can purchase a “Double Pack” for family and friends; this includes a general admission ticket for the women’s matchup and an Upper A ticket for the men’s game for $15 with military ID. General admission parking is included in the price of the ticket.

The public also can purchase the “Double Pack” with the same ticket options for $20.

In addition, UT employees can obtain tickets for half price with no limit on the number of seats purchased. For the women’s game, they can purchase general admission seating for $7. For the men’s contest, employees can buy tickets in Upper A for $8 and Upper B for $5.50.

Along with special ticket prices, active duty or retired military veterans will be recognized throughout the course of each game, and the ROTC oath will be performed at halftime.

There also will be an open gym both days in the Fetterman Practice Gym from 6 to 6:50 p.m. for youth eighth grade and younger.

On top of that, the women’s team will hold a special pre-game Mid-American Conference Championship and NCAA Championships banner and ring presentation, while the men’s program will honor a military family of the game.
