US Bank Stadium Hosts First Ever Basketball Games This Weekend
For the first time since its christening, US Bank Stadium will swap its turf for a hard floor this weekend.
Four college basketball games will be played at US Bank Stadium this Friday and Saturday in preparation for the NCAA Final Four tournament to be held there in April.
The Star Tribune reports that the NCAA requires host venues to conduct at least one game in advance of March Madness. US Bank Stadium will host two games Friday night and two more Saturday, though the building won't be in full Final Four mode; this weekend's court will be moved to a different position in April.
This weekend's schedule is:
Friday, November 30
University of St. Thomas vs. University of Wisconsin – River Falls
University of Minnesota vs. Oklahoma State University
Saturday, December 1
North Dakota State University vs. Drake University
South Dakota State University vs. University of Northern Iowa
Tickets are available for just $13 +fees here.
