    The game will be a good trial run for stadium operators as they prepare to host the 2010 NBA All-Star game in February.

    In addition to the court, a 15-foot-by-25-foot scoreboard will be placed under the center-hung video board.  Once the game is over, the floor will be dismantled and refinished for the All-Star game.

    The Texas Longhorns come into the game ranked second, and defending champion North Carolina is ranked 10th in the country.
