    Crowd For Saturday

    Will this be the game where students who have actually bought tickets and have not been coming to games actually show up?

    Will this be the game where fans in the other sections finally get off their dead @sses and make some noise?

    I realize we have a better crowd than most, but the point is our potential is higher. If we get those extra 400-500 students there and more of the people in the non students sections start whooping it up, I firmly believe it can help the team win the game Saturday.

    This is a huge, huge game, and this team deserves a 3rd place finish. Need to send Scottie and Chris out with a big win!

    Re: Crowd For Saturday

    Whatever happens, the people who are there really need to crank it up for this team. Don't let the officials nail us with a 23-7 free throw deficit like last night.

    There will be lots of open seats on the east side of the balcony. Those seats have not been used all year.

    I know. I've been to a good chunk of the home games. I assume those are unused student tickets? Any chance the AD opens up that chunk to sell before Saturday?

    That's what i'm expecting as well. If those are empty time to give at least half that section back to public.

    Re: Crowd For Saturday

    I would imagine at least half of the upper deck of the student section will be empty, but I expect this to be one of the most energetic games we have seen in Hilton in years. It will be fun!

    Haven't those seats already been sold? I thought they were purchased but unused.

    only 20 tickets available on Stub Hub. All in the balcony. Lowest price is $80 per ticket. Highest is over $200. Obviously Stub Hub is not the end all be all, but it's not a bad indicator. should be a pretty good turnout.

    It's a Saturday so 80 percent of students will be at home so their mommy can wash their bottoms for them.

    Re: Crowd For Saturday

    It's about 8 weeks before finals so people can't be expected to put off studying to attend a basketball game. Those who have already studied for finals will be getting ready to go out later in the night and need that time to shower, shave, etc. There will be at least 8 rows of unused seats.
