Advice for basketball with the A7iii

Hi all,

I am new to Sony.  I am a former Pentax user who's A7iii along with E 85 1.8 and Tamron 28-75 is arriving tomorrow.  I do mostly portraits, but have done my kids sports in the past, but they are done now.  I am going to a college basketball game tomorrow and would like to try it out.  It's a small college gym similar to high school lighting.  Looked at some pics I took last year, and the lighting was f 2.8, 1/500, ISO 3200.

My main questions are around how to set up focusing settings.  I have been watching youtube videos and the options seem vast.  Does eye or face detection work well with sports?  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
