ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - With a new coaching staff, several newcomers and a different style of play, the UCF men's basketball team has a fresh look this season. Fans can get their first chance to see all that is new about the Knights Saturday during UCF Basketball Postgame Madness.
The free event will be held inside the UCF Arena following the conclusion of the UCF-Rice football game on campus. The hour-long affair will feature time on the floor for both the UCF men' and women's teams, a post-event autograph session as well as the opportunity for fans to select their season ticket location for the upcoming season.
Donnie Jones, who is in his first year as the Knights' head coach, plans to put his team through a brief workout during postgame madness, giving fans the opportunity to learn more about UCF's new up-tempo style of play. The Knights will also scrimmage during the event.
"It is not just going to be a meet the team," Jones said. "They are going to be able to see the guys practice at full speed. In the scrimmage they will see our guys competing and going it at for 20 minutes or so. It should be fun for the fans to get a chance to see that."
Representatives from the UCF ticket sales office will be on hand for the select-a-seat portion of postgame madness. Fans interested in learning more about season-ticket options, including the arena's numerous premium seating sections, should head to the ticket sales tables in the front lobby of the arena.
Jones' Knights will play 17 games at the state-of-the-art UCF Arena this year, and season tickets start at just $96. UCF has already surpassed last year's season ticket sales numbers, and a limited number of seats located on the sidelines of the UCF Arena lower bowl remain. To order your season tickets today, call (407) UCF-1000 or visit UCFAthletics.com.
UCF will open the regular season on Nov. 12, hosting West Florida.
