LITTLE ROCK (UALRTrojans.com) – The UALR and Central Arkansas men's basketball programs have reached an agreement to play head-to-head contests each of the next five seasons, UALR Director of Athletics Chris Peterson and UCA Director of Athletics Dr. Brad Teague announced on Tuesday.
In addition to a four-year home-and-home series beginning in the 2015-16 season, the two teams will play a game at the Jack Stephens Center in the upcoming 2014-15 season. The following four seasons will feature two contests each, with one played in Little Rock and the other in Conway.
"It's great that we are able to put this together, as non-conference scheduling can be difficult at times," said Peterson. "The ability to schedule a Division-I, in-state opponent just 30 miles away is great for basketball in the state of Arkansas."
