BOULDER - The University of Colorado men's basketball team in pursuit of its first conference title since the 1968-69 season will take on the Stanford Cardinal this Thursday (8:30 p.m., Fox Sports Net) and California this coming Sunday (3:30 p.m., FSN) in the last two home games of the 2011-12 season at the Coors Events Center.
CU's quartet of seniors: Carlon Brown, Austin Default, Trey Eckloff, and Nate Tomlinson will be playing in their last home games in Boulder this week. Three of the seniors (Dufault, Eckloff, Tomlinson), who have played here all four years and are 52-15 (.776), while the last two years are equally impressive with a 31-3 record (.912), thanks in part to great home advantage at the Coors Events Center.
Sunday's game against Cal is SOLD OUT! The men's basketball team is asking all fans in attendance to wear white in an effort to WHITEOUT the Coors Events Center.
For those who missed a chance to see the Buffs in their home finale are encouraged to get their tickets for this Thursday's game against Stanford. Less than 500 tickets remain for the 8:30 p.m. national broadcast on Fox Sports Net.
Tickets can be purchased online at CUBuffs.com/tickets or by calling 303-49-BUFFS.
Student ticket policy for the last two home games will remain the same. CU Sports Pass holders will receive free admission. A limited number of student tickets will be available to non CU Sports Pass holders for $5 and can be purchased at the student entrance of the Coors Events Center starting an hour before tip-off of each game. All students must have a valid Buff OneCard.
C-Unit Stampeding to Staples
CU Athletics would also like to congratulate the University of Colorado student section, C-Unit, for being named one of the top 16 student sections in the country! To reward the students for their tremendous support, the CU Athletic Department has made arrangements to take the C-Unit passion on the road to the Pac-12 Tournament in Los Angeles.
To help bring the atmosphere of the Coors Events Center to both the Staples Center and the Galen Center, 50 of the most loyal CU Basketball student season ticket holders (according to the Student Loyalty Program) will be joining Coach Boyle & Coach Lappe in Los Angeles to cheer on the CU men's and women's basketball teams from March 7-10! CU Athletics will be providing flight, hotel, and tickets to both the Men's and Women's tournament games!
The most loyal student season ticket holders will be determined after the final two men's basketball home games and will be notified on Monday, February 27.
