    Global Sports Classic Thanksgiving Tourney

    FYI - Thought I would share for hose of you going tickets went on sale today at 10am PST. They sold the tickets as part of the season tcikets so limited supply left. 1 ticket gets you access to both games each day. Must buy a ticket for Friday and Saturday but you get 4 games. Best available for me was section 208 row Q for 5 tickets. No lower levels available. With all fees comes out to be about $38 for 1 ticket each day.

    UNLV ticket office: 866-388-3267

    My friends and I will be in the back of 226. Drunk.

    What I don't get is that the websites claim UNLV plays at 4pm central (6pm PTS), and ISU plays at 5:30pm central on Friday. At least one of those can't be right.

    6pm PT = 8pm CT.

    Oh, that makes sense. I'm an idiot. Should just assume that's the case from now on.

    Re: Global Sports Classic Thanksgiving Tourney

    The winners of the UNLV vs Oregon and Iowa State vs Cincinnati games will play in the championship game at 9:30 Central time on CBS Sports Network.

    The losers of the UNLV vs Oregon and Iowa State vs Cincinnati games will play in the consolation championship game at 7:00 Central time. There will be NO TV for this game according to UNLV's schedule who is the host of the tournament.

    UNLV Official Athletic Site - Men's Basketball

    So hopefully we win and if we don't hopefully someone else picks up the consolation game.

    Re: Global Sports Classic Thanksgiving Tourney

    It says that ISU plays UNLV at the Thomas and Mack...but that this tournament is at the Orleans?

    Anyone know whats up with that and which arena the games will actually be at? Seems silly to play in both.

    I know UNLV beat UNC at the Orleans last year and not their actual home court T+M.

    Where are you seeing this. On UNLV's web site on the schedule it says The Thomas and Mack Center

    This article also states that it will be held at The Thomas and Mack Center. Also when you go to ticket exchange all the tickets listed say the Thomas and Mack Center.

    Re: Global Sports Classic Thanksgiving Tourney

    Best case scenario would be to obviously beat #24 Cincinnati so that we have a chance to win a true road game against #18 UNLV at the Thomas and Mack Center. Plus we would get to play on TV for our second game.

    We don't want our first true game to be at Iowa.
