The Central Arkansas Bears play their basketball in the Southland Conference where they will be trying to win the school’s first trip to the NCAA Tournament this season. They play their home games at the 5500 seat Farris Center which opened in 1972.
What makes college basketball games at the Farris Center so great? Well, for one, it’s college basketball which is pretty great on its own. But also, the Farris Center is the college home of one of the 50 Greatest Players to ever play the game, Scottie Pippen.
Yes, that’s right, Michael Jordan’s Wing Man and a great player himself was a Central Arkansas Bear and played his college ball on the very same floor that this year’s Bears will play. Is there another great NBA star on the floor this year? You never know.
UCA will take on UTSA, UA Little Rock, New Orleans, SE Louisiana, Lamar, McNeese State, Incarnate Word and many more at the Farris Center this season.
While enjoying a great seat with your favorite concession items like nachos, popcorn and hot dogs, you will be looking out on the floor that one of the best to ever lace them up played on.
The atmosphere and neighborhood at the Bears games is very family and fan friendly. You will find plenty of nice places to hang out before the game such as a State Park and a museum.
