The University of Arkansas At Pine Bluff men’s basketball team returns to the friendly confines of the H.O. Clemmons Arena for a Saturday 5 p.m. game hosting Texas Southern and a Monday 6 p.m. game vs. Prairie View A&M.

The UAPB Sports Radio Network broadcast begins at 4:45 p.m. Saturday and 5:45 p.m. Monday on 99.3 FM The Beat.

It’s part of series of weekend matchups against the SWAC Texas teams. UAPB volleyball will host Texas Southern Sunday at Noon and Prairie View A&M Monday at 12:30 p.m.
