CARBONDALE, Ill. - The Saluki ticket office announced on Wednesday the student pick-up schedule for 2007-08 men's basketball tickets.
Full-time undergraduate and graduate students at Southern Illinois University are eligible to claim tickets. Students may also pick up one additional ticket for a fellow student by presenting that person's student ID or Dawg Pound membership card. Only SIU students may use student tickets to attend a game. Student IDs will be checked and validated both at the time of pickup and on game days.
Dawg Pound members will have the opportunity to pick up tickets before the general student body by showing their membership card on designated days. Any tickets that remain unclaimed at the end of the general student pick-up time window will go on-sale to the public. Students can continue to claim tickets up until game time or until tickets run out.
Student tickets for Saluki Basketball are general admission in sections A, U, L, K, AA, UU, LL and KK. Doors open to SIU Arena 90 minutes prior to game time for Dawg Pound members (wearing Dawg Pound t-shirt and presenting membership card and ticket). The arena opens one hour before tip-off for non-Dawg Pound members and the public.
The ticket office is open Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
