Ducks in March Madness

The Oregon Ducks will face Mississippi State in the first round of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament on Friday, March 21st, at Alltell Arena, in North Little Rock, Ark. Tipoff is scheduled for 6:25 CDT (4:25 PDT). This is the second year in a row that Oregon has advanced to NCAA Tournament. Last year the Ducks won three games before losing to eventual winner Florida in the Elite-8.

The University of Oregon today announced that a limited number of tickets for the game will go on sale to Duck Athletic Fund (DAF) members and University of Oregon students at 9 a.m. Monday via the telephone only.

Tickets are priced between $50 and $60 and will grant admission to the Oregon-Mississippi State game as well as the contest between Memphis and Texas-Arlington.

Orders will be accepted by calling the Oregon Athletics Ticket Office at 541-346-4461, with Duck Athletic Fund members and Oregon students having until 5 p.m. Monday to place their orders. A limit of four tickets per order will be in effect for DAF donors, with orders to be filled on a DAF priority point basis. Oregon students will be allowed to purchase only one ticket per student.

The Oregon ticket office will notify Duck Athletic Fund members via e-mail Monday evening if orders cannot be filled.

Orders must be accompanied by a Visa or Mastercard and will be good for Friday's game only. If the Ducks advance to Sunday's second-round game vs. the winner of Friday's Memphis-Texas-Arlington contest, credit cards will automatically be charged for a second game.

Tickets will not be available to Duck Athletic Fund members should Oregon not advance to Sunday's second round.

All tickets must be picked up at the Oregon Will Call window at the Alltel Arena box office in North Little Rock, Ark.
