FRESNO, Calif. --- Single-game tickets for the Fresno State men's basketball team's Friday night exhibition game versus Fresno Pacific and six non-conference home games went on sale Monday morning through Ticketmaster and the Save Mart Center Box Office.
The Bulldogs' non-conference home schedule includes two match-ups against teams that made the 2012 NCAA Tournament with Long Beach State (Nov. 25) and Colorado (Dec. 12) visiting the Save Mart Center this fall.
The non-conference single game tickets start at $17 for adults and $9 for youth, except for the exhibition against Fresno Pacific (Nov. 2), San Diego Christian (Dec. 6) and Sonoma State (Dec. 30) - which are priced at an affordable $7 for adults and $5 for youth (ages 2-12).
The single-game tickets are available for purchase by phone through Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000, online at www.ticketmaster.com, at official Ticketmaster outlets or at the Save Mart Center Box Office (open 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday through Friday).
"We would love to have you come out and take a look at our guys for the first time," head coach Rodney Terry said. "There are a lot of new faces. We are excited about that, and more depth than we had a year ago."
Fresno State returns three starters, including all-conference and NABC all-district guard Kevin Olekaibe (17.6 ppg), from a year ago and welcomes nine newcomers for Terry's season season with the 'Dogs.
Season tickets are only available through the Bulldog Foundation, and the $149 price for the lower bowl seats equals less than $10 per game. To purchase season tickets, please call the BDF at 559-278-7160.
"We need the Red Wave to support us all season long," said Terry. "We are going to be playing in hostile environments all year and a full Save Mart Center helps our guys as we compete for a championship."
Fresno State students have already paid for their admission through student fees, and need to just show their university student ID card to attend (at no additional cost).
Single-game tickets for Fresno State's eight home Mountain West match-ups will go on sale in December. Those MW conference games include showdowns against two teams ranked in the preseason USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll - No. 19 UNLV (Feb. 6) and No. 20 San Diego State (Jan. 9) - and four schools that made the 2012 NCAA Tournament (UNLV, SDSU, New Mexico and Colorado State).
