The University of Southern Indiana Screaming Eagles Men's and Women's basketball team are inviting all local military personnel, both current and retired, to join them for a great afternoon of basketball inside the Physical Activities Center (PAC) during their fifth annual "Hoops for the Troops" event.

According to a press release provided by the USI Athletic Department, veterans, military personnel and their guests will receive free tickets to the games when they present their military ID or proof of service at the front of the PAC. In addition to the free tickets, they'll also be given a yellow pin along with a coupon for a free hot dog, chips and drink.

Both teams will host Lewis University with the ladies up first at 1:00 p.m. followed by the guy's game at 3:15 p.m.
