Men's Basketball to Host "Opening Night" this Friday
Tuesday, Oct. 13, 4:45 p.m. PT

Head coach Ernie Kent and the Oregon men’s basketball program is hosting an “Opening Night” Friday, Oct. 16, at McArthur Court. Fans are invited to get a sneak peak at the 2009-10 team by attending an autograph session and brief intersquad scrimmage, marking the first official day of the men’s basketball season.

The basketball exhibition will take place immediately following the Oregon-California volleyball match which is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. (PT).

The Ducks will be available for autographs in the concourse of Mac Court once the volleyball match is over (during the breakdown and set up of the floor). It’s a great chance to interact with returning players like Tajuan Porter and Joevan Catron, while meeting new players like Malcolm Armstead, Jeremy Jacob, E.J. Singler and Jamil Wilson.

The team will then play against each other in a 30-minute scrimmage.

Oregon will play its first exhibition game Sunday, Nov. 1 against Concordia.
