    Just got two of them. They were down in the front row of section 2 (similar to the corner sideline of our parquet). I am pumped to be so low to cheer on the Clones!

    Good luck. Tried this morning with next to nothing left.

    BTW - Drake's ticketing system SUCKS. Can't emphasize that enough. SUCKS!

    Couple lessons learned.

    Premium seats - they keep coming up with East or West Handicapped. These aren't real seats. Called the ticket office. Not sure why this is so hard to get rid of.

    Beware - balcony first few rows are pretty much all obstructed view. We did this two years ago at Knapp. For those who have been there - you'll remember there is a railing that goes around the walkway on the upper level. The first 2 or 3 rows are below this railing. You wouldn't think it would be a huge deal but it was annoying as all hell.

    So when it comes up with row 1 or 2 - you aren't getting that great of a seat.

    Please note above where I said their ticketing system SUCKS!

    I believe everything is reserved.

    I also love how their ticketing level "colors" in no way matchup with the seating chart.

    Yeah, their ticketing process has left a lot to be desired in past years as well. When I got my tickets this morning they couldn't even tell me what section I was going to be in. I'm going to raise heck if we end up way up top.

    I want to say 7200. (I guess I just did). Something in that neighborhood - not 100% sure though.

    It's a nice venue - don't get me wrong there. I just would prefer to watch on TV than sit in those first rows. And that seems to be all you can get now. Some nice premium singles. Not sure about the ends - I hate those seats.

    Might be better off calling the office and seeing what they have. I don't trust the website - did I mention it sucks.

    It's kind of sad. I used to prop the Drake ticketing when the used TicketReturn.com. Far and away the best system I've seen - smokes Ticketmaster. Must cost alot - ISU wouldn't use it and Drake went away from it.

    I'd almost take the ends over the upper sides, those seats are pretty close to the court if I remember from walking in and out to our seats in past years.

    Definitely closer. I just don't like the angle. Probably doesn't bother others as much.

    I had tickets this morning in row 12, upper side section (16?). Lost them before I could complete the transaction (one more - and last - sucks reference)

    I'd guess that the ends only have 6-8 rows.

    Railing issue still applies. I should add, that the concourse is also part of the obstruction. If you're in your seat, you have people walking directly in front of you at the same level. There's no eleveation to your seat - if you get what I mean.
