Men?s Basketball Offers Discount Tickets
HATTIESBURG, Miss. ? Southern Miss Director of Athletics Richard Giannini has announced a special ticket discount for the 2001-2002 men?s basketball opener against Jackson State at Reed Green Coliseum on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 7 p.m.
?We believe this is a great way for the athletic department to make it possible for a large number of fans to get an early-season look at Head Coach James Green?s team,? Giannini said. ?We really feel that once the fans see how good and how exciting this year?s team will be to watch, they?ll come back. Jackson State is one of the top teams in the Southwestern Athletic Conference, a team that has made a number of trips to the NCAA tournament. They always play us tough, and we would encourage all our fans to be on hand to lend your support as the Eagles open the regular season.?
Ticket holders for the football game versus Tulane, played earlier that same day at 2 p.m., may present their football ticket for a $5 bleacher ticket for the men?s basketball game.
Student guest passes for adults also will be discounted to $5.
The above discount plans do not apply to previously purchased tickets for the game.
Ticket prices to the general public for the Jackson State game are $12 in the chairback seats and $9 (premium) and $6 in the bleacher areas. Bleacher tickets for youths ages 14 and under cost $4. Tickets also remain for the football game versus Tulane.
