Players will greet fans when the Lloyd Noble Center doors open at 5 p.m. At 6, a 90-minute scrimmage will begin, which will include an open mic’d head coach Sherri Coale, who will occasionally stop the action and explain what’s going on directly to the fans. Free T-shirts will be distributed to the first 500 through the door.
