The Southern Miss Athletic Department, in partnership with the Southern Miss Activities Council, will provide a free concert featuring the Grammy-nominated country band Emerson Drive on Saturday at Pride Field before the men’s basketball game against UAB.
The band is known for several hit songs, including top five hits “I Should be Sleeping” and “Fall Into Me,” as well as Billboard number one song “Moments.”
The concert is scheduled from 3 until 4:30 p.m. and will be part of the day-long celebration of Southern Miss basketball history. A luncheon at Mugshots Grill to honor the 1987 NIT Championship team at 11:30 a.m. as well as a conference basketball game against UAB at 5 p.m. in Reed Green Coliseum are also scheduled for Saturday.
Southern Miss Associate Athletic Director of Marketing and Communications Brent Jones expressed his excitement about the event.
“The Athletic Department in conjunction with the university is extremely pleased to offer all of our students, fans, alumni and residents of South Mississippi a great weekend centered on Southern Miss basketball,” Jones said.
“It is our hope to have one of the greatest basketball weekends ever with all of these different events taking place,” Jones said. “The Athletic Department is most grateful for the partnership of the university and especially the Southern Miss Activities Council, who without their support, time and energy, this wonderful event would not have been possible.”
