ASU likely to open basketball series with UCA

Conway, AR (Log Cabin Democrat) - The University of Central Arkansas Bears and Arkansas State are close to setting up a home-and-home basketball series beginning in 2011, according to UCA men's coach Corliss Williamson.

Williamson said the arrangement is close to being established that a classic will be created that UCA would host and alternate playing ASU and UALR in successive years for the Saturday game of the classic. In years, ASU doesn't play in Conway, UCA would play the Red Wolves in a single game at Jonesboro.

The arrangement would initially be set up for four years.
