Welcome Celebration for Men’s Basketball Team
Tucson, Ariz -
The UA Athletics Department will be holding an official Welcome Back Celebration on campus this Saturday, March 26, 2011 when the Wildcat Basketball Team returns from Anaheim. The doors to McKale Memorial Center will open at 9:30pm and the team is expected to arrive at 11pm. Highlights from the season will be playing on the video board in McKale Center as fans anticipate the arrival of the team. Parking will be free in all campus garages and surface lots and light concessions will be available in the arena.
For the safety of the team fans are discouraged from greeting the travel party at the Tucson International Airport (TIA). The basketball team is on a charter flight and arriving at a yet to be determined terminal and not a TIA main terminal. Fans are being asked to please join the rest of community at Mckale Center and celebrate a successful season.
Fans will be directed outside when the bus arrives for a Wildcat Walk into the arena. There will be no formal program, and no one will be speaking to the crowd.
