LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The University of Louisville has announced plans for three men's basketball scrimmages at the KFC Yum! Center in October. Here's the release from U of L sports information:


U of L will stage three opportunities for a preseason look at the 2013-14 Cardinals with three Red-White intrasquad men's basketball scrimmages in the KFC Yum! Center on Saturday, Oct. 5; Saturday, Oct. 12 at 3:30 p.m.; and Saturday, Oct. 19 at 3:30 p.m.

The game time for the Oct. 5 scrimmage will be set later so as not to conflict with the Cardinals' football game at Temple also that day.  The Oct. 19 scrimmage is in concert with U of L's "Year of the Cardinal" Homecoming on Main festivities, which will include activities on the Norton Healthcare Plaza of the KFC Yum! Center prior to the game.

Tickets, priced at $10 for lower side and corner arena seats and $5 for end zone and upper arena seats, will go on sale beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 16 at the U of L Ticket Office, located near Gate 2 of Papa John's Cardinal Stadium at 2800 South Floyd Street. The ticket office is open weekdays from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Cardinal fans may also purchase tickets by visiting Ticketmaster online, calling 1-800-745-3000 or by visiting any Ticketmaster Ticket Center, including statewide Kroger locations.  Convenience fees are applied with Ticketmaster orders.

A limited number of tickets are available for U of L students to each scrimmage at no charge.  Student tickets -- no more than two for each scrimmage -- must be obtained with a valid student ID in advance beginning Monday at 10 a.m. at the U of L ticket office.
