Hoop Teams, Gymnastics Host Block Party Thursday

BATON ROUGE – The LSU men’s and women’s basketball teams, along with the LSU gymnastics team will be on Tower Drive Thursday for the annual Student Block Party.

The event, near Free Speech Alley, will take place Thursday from Noon to 1 p.m.

The Block Party will give students a chance to meet the members of their 2016-17 Men’s and Women’s Basketball team and the 2017 Gymnastics team. The LSU basketball sport court will be available for students to try their luck on some shooting drills, and free Kona Ice and popcorn will be provided.

Season tickets for all three sports are available at the LSU Athletic Ticket Office and at LSUtix.net. The Lady Tiger basketball team plays a free exhibition game on Sunday at 2 p.m. against LeMoyne-Owen, while the Tiger basketball squad plays its free exhibition contest on Monday at 7 p.m. Both contests are in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

The season openers are Nov. 12 for the men and Nov. 11 for the women’s basketball team.
