Games started at 9 a.m. and continue until 2 p.m. in both Catherine Dixon Roland Arena, Roland Student Center, and James W. Wilson Jr. Gymnasium, Will and Kelly Wilson Community and Athletic Center.

Admission is free and the public is invited to attend. 

This is the fifth year Huntingdon has hosted teams from the championship basketball tournament for Alabama Special Olympics.
