    That's also what I would do. Students being gone means there will be hundreds of open seats and they'll probably even invite everyone down to fill in the seats over the PA system anyway. They have the last few years anyway.

    Yeah, a few minutes into Sunday's game they invited everyone in the upper level to move down to the seats behind the baskets where Cyclone Alley is. I'd imagine they'll do the same tonight.

    So, I shouldn't pay the TicketMaster fee for this season ticket holder "perk"?

    Bring a friend or family member to a men's basketball game held during the holiday breaks. Each men's basketball season ticket holder account will receive two complimentary* tickets to one of the holiday break games.
    *Ticketmaster fees apply

    Can you do it at the ticket office before the game? Basically all you need to do is get into the stadium and you're likely good to go.

    The tickets to sit in the student sections during holiday breaks are only $15. I got row 7 for all of the games and I just bought them Saturday.

    And like had been mentioned, on Sunday they just told everybody to move down to finish filling them up anyway.

    Re: Chances of scoring Arena seats for tonight's game

    Has anyone actually bought from scalpers for games this time of year? I think I want to go to the game tonight, but I want to know if it will be cheaper to just hit the ticket office and buy balcony or if I can get a discount from face from a scalper.

    Note, I've never scalped anything before because I've always had season tickets.

    There is a scalper out front that usually has good tickets for a fair price, depending on quality of opponent. I have always had good luck with him in the past.
