The UALR Trojans cover courts with nimble dribbles and fast breaks in their quest to claim the 2011–12 Sun Belt Conference crown. Four seniors lead the men’s squad, helping new recruits master an uptempo playing style and passionate solos on the team saxophone. Senior guard D’Andre Williams aims to top the 109 assists and 43 steals he racked up in his junior year, and senior forward Courtney Jackson looks to jump higher than ever after recovering from the knee injury that benched him last season. Helmed by Joe Foley, the 2010 and 2011 Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year, the women’s team hopes to earn its fifth consecutive Sun Belt West Division title. Senior center Marian Kursh will add to the 720 points she’s scored over the past three years and graph last season’s 6.2 rebound-per-game average on the scoreboard’s giant coordinate plane.
Instead of eating a hula-hoop, basketball enthusiasts can get their hoop fix by cheering on the Trojans from 100-level end-court seats. A quartet of hot dogs and sodas will serenade the stomachs of fans who purchase today’s second option, replacing surly growls with contented silences.
