Wichita State University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) men’s basketball teams will play at Wichita’s INTRUST Bank Arena this November.
The event will take place November 25, 2011 and will be the first meeting between the two schools since 2007.
“This game should be another great matchup for our basketball team. We have increased our schedule strength over the past couple of years and this game
is another indication of our dedication to this practice.” said Gregg Marshall, head coach of Wichita State. “It gives us the opportunity to
play post-season tournament competition and will continue to prepare us for the Missouri Valley Conference.”
INTRUST Bank Arena, which opened in January 2010, has played host to one men's college basketball game — Tulsa vs. Wichita
State this past December — and was the home for the NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Tournament First and Second Rounds in
Ticket prices for the game at INTRUST Bank Arena are yet to be determined. Wichita State University men’s basketball
