The Marquette University men's basketball team will make its debut in Fiserv Forum when the squad hosts Carroll University in exhibition action on Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 7 p.m. CT.
GoMarquette.com will feature a free live video stream of the matchup, featuring the play-by-play call of Steve "The Homer" True and Tony Smith on 540 ESPN. The first 1,500 fans in attendance will receive a complimentary 2018-19 team schedule poster.
The Golden Eagles are 13-2 all-time against the Pioneers, but the two teams haven't met since the season opener in the 1951-52 campaign. MU would claim its first-ever title that season, earning the crown at the National Catholic Tournament in Troy, N.Y. The series dates back to Marquette's first varsity season in 1916-17 and the Pioneers were able to claim a narrow 24-21 decision.
Fiserv Forum (17,500) opened in the fall of 2018 and is home to the Milwaukee Bucks. The 6.7-acre site features a 75,000-square-foot plaza that's open year round, 850 televisions, 34 luxury suites and 33 lofts. One of the fan experience highlights is the Panorama Club, which includes an outdoor balcony with a view of downtown Milwaukee.
Marquette's regular season opener and first official game in Fiserv Forum is Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 8 p.m. against UMBC.
