The IU women’s basketball program will honor servicemen and women this season. 

IU Athletics announced that IU’s Nov. 11 contest against Arkansas State will be designated as the Salute to Service game.

IU Athletics plans to honor all military, police, fire and EMS service members as well as first responders by making them eligible to receive two complimentary tickets to the game. 

Additional tickets can be purchased for $5 for adults and $3 for children. The deadline to order the complimentary tickets is Nov. 6, but all qualified service members can purchase tickets for a special price of $2 if they miss the deadline.

The Hoosiers’ contest against the Red Wolves will be their regular season opener to the 2017-18 season at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. 

This will be the second consecutive special night for the women’s basketball program as they officially kick off the season. They will hold ALS Awareness Night at their exhibition game against Gannon University on Nov. 6 in Bloomington. 

The exhibition game will have free admission.
