Nevada Basketball Eliminates Gen Admission Seats

Some Nevada basketball fans are upset that ticket prices are going up this season and even more upset that the school is eliminating all general admission seating.

The three sections that were general admission last season will be upper level end zone reserved this season at the Lawlor Events Center.

Longtime Wolf Pack fan Marko Boscovich of Sparks says he doesn't
understand why school officials are making it more difficult for people to attend games when for years they have been begging for support.

He says even the Romans and the Greeks offered general admission

U-N-R officials say the problem is that success has made Nevada basketball tickets sizzling hot.

The Wolf Pack has a 106-27 record in the past four seasons and reached the NCAA Tournament each year.

Associate Athletic Director Keith Hackett says he expects they'll end up selling 10-thousand season tickets this year.

He says he's had only two calls complaining about the elimination of
general admission seating.

Ticket prices overall are two-dollars more than last year, with individual game tickets going 24-dollars for reserved tickets sold on game day.
