NCAA Tournament Tickets

STARKVILLE, Miss. ­ The Mississippi State Athletic Ticket Office will accept orders for first- and second-round men's basketball tournament tickets from Superdog priority level donors and above who purchased 2002-03 MSU season tickets, beginning Monday, March 17, 2003, at 8 a.m. CT.

Coach Rick Stansbury's Bulldogs will play the Butler Bulldogs, Friday, March 21, at the Birmingham Jefferson (Ala.) Civic Center. Game times will be announced Monday.

In buying NCAA tournament tickets, those priority level donors will be limited to the number of season tickets purchased for the 2002-03 season, not to exceed a maximum of four tickets. Seats will be assigned based upon priority level, as long as supplies last. Superdogs and above must place their order on Monday.

MSU is working to secure additional tickets from the Birmingham site. The university is unable at this time, however, to accept orders from other donor priority levels or from the general public.

A limited number of student tickets may be ordered through the Bryan Athletic Administration Ticket Office, beginning Tuesday, March 18, at 8 a.m. One ticket request per valid MSU student identification will be accepted at the Bryan Building.

Tickets for the NCAA tournament are priced at $120 apiece and may be purchased with an approved credit card by calling 1-662-325-2600 or 1-888-GO-DAWGS.
