Prepare for Battle!

November 4, 2011

Join the Loyola community on Sunday, Nov. 6 from 5-7 p.m., for the Battle of Freret Street pep rally in the St. Charles Room of the Danna Student Center, preceding the men’s basketball game against Tulane at Fogelman Arena.

Another pep rally will be held before the women’s basketball game against Tulane on Friday, Nov. 11 starting at 5 p.m. Both events will include music, food, a photo booth, button making and appearances by Havoc.

At the conclusion of the pep rallies, the Big Fun Brass Band will lead Loyola fans in a second line across the street to Tulane University’s Fogelman Arena for tipoff. Tipoff for both men’s and women’s basketball games is at 7 p.m.

Students can purchase tickets to the game for $5 and use their meal plan to purchase food at the pep rally. Alumni, faculty, staff and friends can choose between two ticket packages.

  • Package #1 – $10 cost includes entrance to the men’s basketball game, parking, food and beverages at the pep rally, a T-shirt and a souvenir cup.
  • Package #2 – $15 cost includes tickets to both games, parking, food and beverage at both pep rallies, as well as a souvenir T-shirt and cup.
