The simple answer is we became a Division 1 basketball program in 2009-10 at the time we were asked to start to generate revenue for the athletic department to help support our programs. Increasing ticket revenue was one way to increase revenue. We used the ticket prices of other lower level Div.1 programs to set our prices. We went from $5.00 to$12 for midcourt reserve seat, general admission $10 adult, $8.00 for youth, senior citizen, and military. We also do a $5.00 group ticket for 20 or more. If you have further questions give me a call.
