Next week the NCAA Division II world will have all eyes on St. Mary’s University as we host our first national championship. The NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball Elite Eight will be broadcast live on ESPN-U and ESPN2 from Bill Greehey Arena March 24-27.
This is your chance to be a part of March Madness so let’s show the NCAA and the television audience that St. Mary’s is the best school for the national spotlight. Student tickets are only $5, while faculty and staff tickets are $8 and are on sale now at the Alumni Athletics & Convocation Center check-in desk. Not only can you show your St. Mary’s pride, be on national television and see a national championship, you also get to take advantage of our special deal with Fatso’s. When you bring a game ticket to Fatso’s the week of the tournament and buy a large soda or iced tea, you will receive a free chopped barbeque sandwich and chips.
You can also support your favorite St. Mary’s student organization by attending the games. The student organization with the most people (members, friends & family) in attendance at the tournament will get a free party at Fatso’s complete with food, drinks, a DJ and volleyball play.
