The first annual Arkansas Legislative Hoops For Kids' Sake Game is coming up on Tuesday, and we're really, really excited here at the Times. So much so that we've wasted a couple hours making 10 basketball cards of participating members, replete with nicknames and scouting reports. See all those we feature on the jump and click on the images to see a bigger version paired with the back of the card, where the scouting report is located.
Props to our Capitol reporter David Ramsey for the scouting reports and art director Kai Caddy for the design.
The game will be 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 19 at the Jack T. Stephens Center. General admission tickets are $5 and available at the door. Doors open at 6 p.m. All proceeds will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas.
