Basketball Games This Week Moved to Swisher Gym

Next weekend’s doubleheaders on Thursday night and Saturday afternoon will now be played on-campus in the newly-renovated Swisher Gymnasium.

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.
