Grace’s men’s basketball team will be showcased at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on December 11.
The Lancers will take on IU-Southeast at the home of the NBA’s Indiana Pacers at 2:30 p.m. The Pacers will host the Miami Heat at 7 p.m. that evening. Fans purchasing a ticket to Grace’s game with IU-Southeast will receive a combo pass to the Pacers-Heat game that night.
“We are honored for our basketball program to be given the chance to play at Bankers Life Fieldhouse,” said Grace athletic director Chad Briscoe. “This will be a great memory for our coaches and athletes to play at one of the top facilities in Indiana, and we are excited for alumni and fans to have this experience as well.”
The Dec. 11 game is a rematch between the Lancers and Grenadiers. The teams faced off at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Nov. 16, 2010.
Ticket prices are $40.70 for a lower balcony seat and $24.20 for an upper balcony seat. Tickets are purchased for the Pacers-Heat game, but fans will need to show that ticket to have access to the Grace game in the afternoon. Fans may sit anywhere in the lower bowl for the Lancers’ contest.
“It’s always a thrill to play in an NBA arena. It’s really neat to play on the same floor that the best players in the world play on,” said Grace men’s basketball coach Jim Kessler. “It should be a very competitive game as well, which will make the day even better.”
