Holiday Ticket Packages Available for Early Season Basketball
LUBBOCK, Texas -Texas Tech has created a special ticket package for four men's and women's basketball games scheduled for the holiday season, Athletic Director Gerald Myers announced today.
The package provides for a total of two men's games and two women's games scheduled between December 29 and January 3 can be purchased for $20 each. The package includes women's games against former Southwest Conference rival SMU on Dec. 29 and NCAA runner-up Old Dominion on Jan 1. It also includes two men's games against Stephen F. Austin on Dec. 30 and Iowa State on Jan. 3.
"These are two big basketball games for us and fan support will be a key part of our success during the holiday season," said Lady Raider Head Coach Marsha Sharp. "SMU and Old Dominion are two of the strong programs in women's college basketball. I am really pleased that we can offer a discount for our fans to come out and see us compete against them."
"With our students away for the holidays, it is important for us to encourage our fans to come to the games," said James Dickey. "This holiday package is a great way for those people who otherwise would not attend a Texas Tech basketball game to have an opportunity to see our teams play. It's vitally important to have large, vocal crowds, especially for the Iowa State game that opens the Big 12 season."
