This year’s Arizona men's basketball’s Red-Blue game has a new name as well as two familiar hosts.
The annual preseason event, now named the First Watch Red-Blue Showcase, will take place on Sept. 29 at 7:30 p.m. PT. The renaming of the event is meant to reflect that the event includes more than a scrimmage, according to The Daily Star’s Bruce Pascoe.
Arizona has officially renamed its Sept. 29 preseason men's basketball event the "Red Blue Showcase" to reflect the fact that that (long ago) it became a preseason splash with contests, intros, etc. The scrimmage within the "Showcase" will still be called the Red Blue Game.— Bruce Pascoe (@BrucePascoe) September 11, 2023
Former Arizona Wildcats Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson will host the event, they announced on their “Road Trippin” podcast. They’ll be joined by co-host Allie Clifton.
“We’re gonna be there. Get ready,” Frye said “Road Trippin”. “Get ready to celebrate.”
Tickets to the Red-Blue Showcase will go on sale at ArizonaWildcats.com on Aug. 19 at 9 a.m. Ticket prices are $20 in sections A and B; $15 in C, D and E; $10 in F through N.
Media and viewing options will be announced later.
