HATTIESBURG, Miss. -
Southern Miss basketball is giving fans a chance to bring a big gathering to its next home game, Tuesday, Dec. 2, against South Alabama.
The Golden Eagles are offering 10 tickets for $20 for their 7 p.m., game against the Jaguars, who were 26-7 last season and reached the NCAA Tournament.
"We felt at this time of year, with it being the holiday season, this would be a perfect outing for an office or a civic group looking to spend a fun and enjoyable night of watching basketball," Southern Miss Deputy Director of Athletics Scott Carr said. "It would also be a great opportunity for a pair of families to get together for an inexpensive night out during this time of year."
Southern Miss is 4-1 this year after finishing in fourth-place at the Paradise Jam tournament in the Virgin Islands earlier this week that included wins over LaSalle and Iona.
Tickets can be purchased by going by the Pat Ferlise Ticket Office (West 4th Street) or calling 1-800-844-TICK. Fans who want to take advantage of this promotion can purchase more than 10 tickets at $2 apiece as well.
