The Thompson-Boling Arena gates will open at 5:30 tonight — a half hour earlier than usual — for Tennessee's women's basketball game against Notre Dame.

Fans are advised to be in their seats at least 20 minutes before the 7 p.m. start in order to see the banner-raising ceremony honoring Lady Vols head coach emeritus Pat Summitt.

The Lady Vols have asked all fans to wear orange apparel and create an "Orange Out" for the game.

Along with the banner ceremony, UT's 1991 national championship trophy will be on display on the concourse behind section 116.
