    CARBONDALE, Ill. - Saluki Athletics announced a new men's basketball ticket promotion on Thursday called the "Saluki Surge to 5,000."

    The department's goal is to surpass 5,000 season tickets sold. Once the goal is reached, a drawing will take place to select one season-ticket holder (current or new) to win two all-session tickets to the State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Championship, plus accommodations at the Salukis' team hotel in St. Louis, March 5-8, 2009.

    The department recently eclipsed 4,900 season tickets sold, surpassing last year's record of 4,744 season tickets. Prior to 2007, the highest season-ticket total had been 3,582.

    This season, Big Dawg seats have been added in Section DD, after Sections GG and OO sold out last season. The Big Dawg seats are priced at $160 and offer an extra two inches of seating. Regular bench seating in the upper bowl is $150. No Saluki Athletic Scholarship Fund (SASF) donation is required to purchase seats in any of these sections.

    To order season tickets, call the SIU Arena Ticket Office at (618) 453-2000 or 877-SALUKIS.

    The Salukis host Southwest Baptist in the team's final exhibition game tonight at 7 p.m. at SIU Arena and open the regular season hosting the 2K Sports Classic Nov. 11 and 12.
