UA to host Elite Eight watch party at Bud Walton Arena

The University of Arkansas will host a watch party for the men’s basketball team’s game against Baylor in the Elite Eight on Monday at Bud Walton Arena.

The game will be shown on the video board and TVs around the arena. Doors open at 8:15 p.m. with tipoff set for 8:57 p.m. The game will also be televised on CBS.

Fans are asked to park in Lots 56, 56B, 60 or any lot west of Razorback Road (see parking map). No shuttle service will be provided. Fans should enter the arena through either the south or east entrances.

Masks or face coverings are required and must be worn while inside the arena. Fans must also socially distance in the seating bowl and on the concourse. The SEC’s usual clear bag policy will be in place along with metal detectors entering the arena.

A limited number of concession stands will be open, but no outside food or drinks will be allowed. The first 100 students in attendance will get free Slim Chickens.

The game marks the team’s first Elite Eight appearance since 1995, when they later advanced to the National Championship game and finished runner-up to UCLA.
