The University of Toledo Athletic Department announced this week that 2018-19 men’s and women’s basketball season tickets are now on sale.
Season ticket plans are available with a variety of pricing options, benefits and new opportunities.
Season ticket options for men’s basketball include the lower level premium blue and gold sections. These premium areas are some of the very best seats in Savage Arena and require a Rocket Fund premium seat payment.
New to the 2018-19 season is the expansion of the premium purple season ticket package to include Section 101 and part of Section 110. Season tickets for this section start at just $180 plus a premium seat payment of $75. Other reserved season ticket options for the men are available in the upper east level starting at $80.
The Rocket men registered a 23-11 record last year, including a trip to the Mid-American Conference Championship Game, and will return four starters for the 2018-19 campaign. Senior guard Jaelan Sanford earned second-team All-MAC honors last year and ranked ninth in the MAC with 16.3 points per game and a 40.3 three-point shooting mark. Senior forward Nate Navigato set a school record last year with 94 three-pointers and ranked second in the MAC with a 42.7 three-point percentage. Also returning will be the junior duo of center Luke Knapke (10.8 points per game, 6.3 rebounds per game) and forward Willie Jackson (7.6 points per game, 5.6 rebounds per game), as well as All-MAC Freshman Team member Marreon Jackson (8.0 points per game, 2.7 assists per game).
Women’s basketball elite reserved season tickets are $150 in sections 108, 109 and the first five rows of section 102 and 103. General admission season tickets for women’s basketball are priced at $95.
The Rocket women made their sixth Postseason WNIT appearance last year. UT defeated Horizon League member Wright State, 64-50, in the first round before falling at Big Ten foe Michigan State, 68-66. Two-time All-MAC honoree senior Mikaela Boyd (12.1 points per game, 8.0 rebounds per game, 4.2 assists per game), 2017-18 third-team All-MAC selection senior Kaayla McIntyre (16.0 points per game, 7.7 rebounds per game) and 2016-17 All-MAC Freshman Team recipient junior Mariella Santucci (6.4 points per game, 4.1 assists per game) will be the focal points of UT’s offense in 2018-19.
Another new option for the 2018-19 basketball season is a youth season ticket price (50 percent discount for 12 and younger) in all areas.
Also, the UT Athletic Department is pleased to announce a ticket exchange program where season ticket members can exchange tickets for games they cannot attend. Season ticket members may exchange a ticket they are not using for a ticket of equal or lesser value to a future home game. Some restrictions may apply, and all ticket exchanges are based upon availability. In addition, exchanges must be made at least 48 hours in advance of the game by the physical ticket in at the UT Ticket Office.
