Donor Set to Donate 1,000 Student Tickets for Men's Basketball NIT Opener
HATTIESBURG, Miss. - A generous donor has agreed to purchase 1,000 student tickets for the Southern Miss NIT opening round contest, Wednesday night, against Toledo. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m., at Reed Green Coliseum.
The tickets will be distributed to the first 1,000 students who show a valid Southern Miss ID at the student entrance (West Gate) to Reed Green Coliseum on Wednesday evening. Students may begin lining up for the tickets at 6 p.m., with doors scheduled to open at 6:30 p.m., one hour prior to tipoff. Once those tickets are handed out, students will need to purchase $5 student tickets at the Reed Green ticket office.
The Golden Eagles enter the game with a 27-6 record having won the C-USA regular-season crown and reached the semifinals of the conference's postseason tournament. This is the third-straight year Southern Miss has won at least 25 games.
