(Boise, ID) – Even though the ECHL’s Idaho Steelheads hit the road for Thanksgiving next week, CenturyLink Arena will still be bustling with activity as basketball returns to downtown Boise.
On Wednesday, November 23, the University of Idaho travels to Boise to host the Lewis-Clark State Warriors of Lewiston in a men’s basketball clash at 7 PM. It’ll be the second time the two teams have left the panhandle to battle in Boise, with Idaho defeating LCSC, 71-52, on December 29, 2009. The game was played in front of a capacity crowd of 4,111.
Tickets for the matchup are available by contacting the CenturyLink Arena box office at 208.331.TIXS.
Then, on Friday, the Idaho Stampede of the NBA’s Development League kick off their regular season with a home contest against the Tulsa 66ers. The two teams will play again on Saturday night.
The ECHL’s Idaho Steelheads will spend their Thanksgiving in Loveland, CO, with three games in four nights against the Colorado Eagles. It’ll be the first meetings between the two teams after Colorado joined the ECHL from the Central Hockey League this season. Wednesday’s game in Loveland will be carried live on KTIK-FM (93.1), with Friday and Saturday’s games returning to the usual home of Steelheads hockey, KTIK-AM (1350) with Will Hoenike handling the play-by-play each night beginning at 7 PM.
