    Website that shows views from Hilton seating

    I am trying to buy 2 tickets to the TTU MBB game on Feb 22 and there are slim pickens for seats out there. I want to see what my point of view will be from different sections so I know which ones will be better. I thought there was a website where you could click on a section inside Hilton and it would give you a picture of what the point of view would look like, but I cannot find. Anyone know where this is? TIA!

    There is not a bad seat in the house! 100-199 sections are parquet level and 200+ is balcony. At least I think I recalled that correctly...

    Sides are best, followed by corners.

    ISU used to have pictures of the views from each section for both Hilton and JTS, but they don't anymore. I was looking for this last week as well and couldn't find anything.

    Re: Website that shows views from Hilton seating

    Okay, then I'll just ask this...what's the better deal...buy on Stubhub $100/ticket for Corner Sec. 106 row 5 or Cyclones.com $25/ticket for Sec. 235 row 8?

    If sec 235 is on the side then you are getting a much better deal.

    Honestly, it doesn't really matter, no seat is bad as you don't have any obstructed views or any poles in your way. Obviously the sides are best, followed by the corners, then the ends. Everything is centered pretty well and there is decent symmetry, so it's really not an issue what corner you are on, they all have an equal view of the court.

    Those lower level corner seats are just as good as seats in the upper deck, IMO. Id save the $75, $100 for one basketball game is pretty steep anyways.

    I'd buy 235 myself no question. Even if the price was much closer.

    I would buy the $25's and spend the other $75 on something else.

    Re: Website that shows views from Hilton seating

    Done! Thanks for the help, guys. I just bought the cheaper ones in section 235. Appreciate the help, I don't have much experience with the seating in Hilton outside the student section. This will be my first basketball game since graduating in 2005!
