Several media outlets including the Knoxville News Sentinel featured a new cost efficient and energy saving lighting system in Thompson-Boling Arena which was developed and installed by locally-based Bandit-LED North America.

The lights will be debuted during the UT-Vanderbilt men’s basketball game on March 1. To read the article, visit the Knoxville News Sentinel website (subscription required).
