OMAHA, Neb. – In partnership with Creighton Students Union, a student ticket lottery for the 2014 BIG EAST Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament presented by New York Life was announced today. For the first time, students will have the opportunity to purchase the Creighton allotment of student section tickets in a lottery to be held at the Skutt Student Center on February 6th at 8:30 PM. The lottery, hosted by Creighton Students Union with assistance from the Men’s Basketball team, is the only way to purchase Creighton lower bowl student section tickets for the BIG EAST Tournament to be held at Madison Square Garden from March 12-15.
Students will have until February 6th at 8:15 PM to register for the lottery and be entered to win the right to purchase a ticket to each of the Creighton tournament games. To register students must download the Bluejays Hilltop App. Recently released, Bluejays Hilltop rewards students for attendance at various athletic and campus events. Once downloaded students will check-in to the lottery before the 8:15 PM deadline on the 6th. Bluejays Hilltop is available for Apple and Android platforms. For those without a smart phone a non-mobile verison is also available by visiting bluejayshilltop.com.
A lottery for the available student section tickets will be held at 8:30 PM on February 6th at the Skutt Student Center in conjunction with the Founders Week Feast for Students. Those selected in the lottery will be able to purchase their ticket on site. Each winner will be responsible for purchasing all four potential Creighton games ($10 per game, $40 total). By winning students are only afforded the opportunity to purchase a game ticket and are responsible for travel and accommodations individually. In the event Creighton plays less then four games accounts will be refunded on a per game basis. Winners unable to purchase that evening will have until 4:30 PM on Friday, February 14th to claim their ticket at the Creighton University Ticket Office located in the Ryan Athletic Center at D.J. Sokol Arena during normal business hours (M-F, 9-4:30).
Those not selected will still have the ability to purchase tickets by visiting bigeast.com/mbbtickets. All remaining available tickets for the tournament are upper bowl only and sold as all session by the BIG EAST Conference beginning at $180 and ranging to $275 depending on location. If questions please contact the Creighton Ticket Office at 402-280-JAYS. In partnership with the Creighton Students Union, Creighton Athletics is excited to host this event and others moving forward.
