Admission to the Orange-White scrimmage is free. The majority of the lower floor seats will be held for UT students, while the upper bowl will be general admission on a first-come, first-served basis. Fans are encouraged to line up outside the gym entrance on the afternoon of the scrimmage in advance of doors opening at 5 p.m.
Free pizza will be provided to the first 500 UT students. In addition, Texas Athletics will be giving away free t-shirts to the first 750 fans in attendance (either general public or students).
During the 5-6 p.m. window, the event will feature on-court promotions and interactive fan contests. The Texas players are expected to join the action on the court at 6 p.m. and add to the festivities. The Longhorns will then take to the floor for an intrasquad scrimmage.
