The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns men's basketball team will take the court for the first time on Thursday when it faces off in the Red-White Scrimmage at Blackham Coliseum.

Tipoff is set for 6:30 p.m. Admission is free with doors opening at 6 p.m. The first 500 fans in the door will receive free popcorn and a drink. Posters and season ticket brochures will be available for fans.

Louisiana, which finished 19-15 last season, returns three starters and five letterwinners from last year's team. Senior Jay Wright, a Preseason Third-Team All-Sun Belt Conference selection, returns to the lineup and will be joined by returning starters Johnathan Stove and Bryce Washington with newcomers Frank Bartley, Jerekius Davis and Kadavion Evans looking to make significant contributions.

Scott Plaisance and Jacob Broussard also return for the Ragin' Cajuns with newcomers Justin Miller, P.J. Hardy, Roydell Brown and Larenz Stalcup getting their first exposure in a Louisiana uniform.

Fans attending the intra-squad scrimmage will be able to see the trio of Division I transfers JaKeenan Gant (Missouri), Marcus Stroman (South Carolina) and Malik Marquetti (USC) play for the only time this season.

Louisiana will officially open the exhibition season against West Florida on Nov. 3 before opening the season at Minnesota on Nov. 11.
