All students will be admitted to the Arkansas versus Ole Miss basketball game Tuesday night for free, the UA announced last week.

Students must show a valid student ID at the east entrance of Bud Walton Arena. No student access pass is required.

“We want to thank our students for their passionate support throughout the basketball season,” said UA athletic director Jeff Long. “Their active participation has once again made Bud Walton Arena one of the best home court advantages in all of college basketball. I want to encourage our students to come out next Tuesday to help honor our two seniors and cheer on our men’s basketball team in our final home conference game of the season.”

Prior to the game, senior forwards Michael Sanchez and Marvell Waithe will be recognized as part of the senior day ceremonies.

In addition, the first 500 students entering Bud Walton Arena will receive a free Nike headband.

The game tips off at 6 p.m., and will be televised by ESPNU.
