Join me Saturday, January 21st, at 3:00 p.m., for an exciting afternoon of NCAA men’s college basketball as the Loyola University Ramblers take on the Evansville University Aces at Loyola’s Gentile Arena.
Loyola University declared Saturday the 21st to be “49th Ward Day” at the game and is graciously providing 49th Ward residents and their families deeply-discounted tickets to watch the Ramblers face off against the Aces. Loyola is enjoying a particularly good season so this is a hot ticket!

This promises to be an exciting game as Loyola goes up against Evansville in this Missouri Valley Conference rivalry.
Many thanks to Loyola and its Athletics and Recreation Department for making this opportunity possible for the residents of the 49th Ward.
P.S. Before or after the game, stop by Ireland‘s Pub, located on the lower level of the Damen Student Center, just west of the Gentile Arena. It is Loyola University’s first and only student-run pub.
Named after George Ireland, coach of the1963 Loyola men’s basketball team that famously won the NCAA national championship, Ireland‘s offers pub-style food, including signature hot dogs, specialty sandwiches, and nachos. The pub also features an assortment of fountain drinks, wine, and local and national beers.
