Things to Know About the Cajuns’ Saturday Game With Troy – From the Bird’s Nest
After last night's excitement in the game between Louisiana and South Alabama, there's a good chance you'll see a pretty good crowd at the Cajundome tomorrow night when the Cajun men and women take on Troy. So, we thought we'd take a minute to remind you of some things:
EARLIER TIP TIME -- Normally at the Cajundome, women's games are at 5:00pm and the men at 7:15. But tomorrow, the women will tip off against Troy at 4pm. The men are scheduled for 6:30 all to accommodate ESPN3.
GET THERE EARLY -- You may or may not have noticed, but Garry Brodhead;s women are on a serious roll The Cajuns are 13-3, 6-1 in Sun Belt play and playing good, exciting basketball. And, they're playing a Troy squad that's just a game behind them in the standings. Troy scored 112 points in a game last weekend. The women deserve your support.
WEAR RED -- We always say that. But in particular tomorrow. Because the game(s) have been designated a "Red Out" game. Everyone is encouraged to stay away from the black and white Cajuns garb and go with the red.
BRING A KID -- Saturday is "Take a Kid to the Game" night. All kiddos eleven and younger accompanied by a paying adult will get a free ticket to the game. Some of those tickets were distributed at schools. If you didn't get one for YOUR kid, you can print a coupon out at ragincajuns.com or get one at the Cajundome Box office. You'll save money and your kid will have a great time.
WANT A SHOT AT $10,000? -- Well, you might get that chance if you're a UL student. Some lucky student will have that opportunity with a half court shot at halftime of the men's game. If you know someone who goes to UL, might let them know about it.
BE A PART OF CAJUNS' HISTORY--In the storied history of Ragin' Cajuns basketball, only five players have scored 2,000 or more points in a career. #6 will happen tomorrow night. Shawn Long is at 1,998. His first basket will make him #6.
See you at the game(s). Don't forget....women at 4. Men at 6:30....and bring your honey. You might wind up on Kiss Cam.
