Troy to ‘White Out’ Trojan Arena for Ole Miss game
Published 3:00 am Saturday, November 15, 2014
The Troy men’s basketball team will play a much-anticipated non-conference game against SEC opponent Ole Miss Monday and the university is looking to make Trojan Arena even more raucous when they “White Out Trojan Arena.”
Fans are asked to wear all white to the game Monday to contribute to the whiteout. The first 3,000 fans in attendance will be given free white T-shirts to commemorate the game. In addition, the first 500 students will receive white rally towels, presented by the Edge @ Troy Apartments.
Monday will mark the second time in three seasons the Trojans have hosted an SEC opponent. Troy opened Trojan Arena with a 56-53 win over Mississippi State in front of a sellout crowd.
“This year, I’m excited to get revenge on them (Ole Miss),” senior Kevin Thomas said. “I’m actually hoping that we get a lot of people coming to the game. I feel like the attendance is going to be pretty big. If it is, it will help us get going and help get the adrenaline pumping.”
