Next weekend’s doubleheaders on Thursday night and Saturday
afternoon will now be played on-campus in the newly-renovated Swisher
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – To celebrate the renovation of Swisher Gymnasium, the
men’s and women’s basketball games on Thursday night and Saturday afternoon
will be moved away from Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena and brought back
on-campus where platinum-level sponsor Sea Best Seafood – host of the annual
Free Game – has made both sets of doubleheaders free for the public.
On Thursday night, the women’s basketball team will host a key Atlantic Sun
conference battle against co-league leaders Florida Gulf Coast at 5 p.m. Fans
are encouraged to wear pink and join the Dolphins in the fight against breast
cancer. Following the conclusion of that contest, the men will take on East
Tennessee State at approximately 7:15 p.m.
Two days later, the other co-league leader in women’s hoops comes to town with
Stetson facing JU at 1 p.m. When they wrap up, the men’s basketball team will
celebrate Senior Day at 3:15 p.m. against USC Upstate.
It will be a busy weekend around campus, so drop by, enjoy some free basketball
and take in the new-look Swisher Gym.
