St. Mary's fans unimpressed by NIT

New, comments

St. Mary's plays in the McKeon Pavilion, which seats 3,500. As of right now, on the St. Mary's Web site, you can still purchase ...

  • Second row tickets for $75 each.
  • Seventh row tickets in section AA of their upper reserved section for $20 each. (There are 11 rows in that section.)
  • Tickets in their general admission EE section for $15 each. (This is the midcourt GA section.)

I draw two conclusions from this.

  1. Despite what anyone says, at the very least, the Gaels' fans are not excited about this game -- there are still a sizeable portion of those 3,500 seats left to sell. Seems to me that someone is a little to big for their britches if they think they're a little too good for the NIT.
  2. This might not be as much of a homecourt advantage as we were worried about; there might be a lot more WSU fans there than anyone is anticipating. I don't know how many fans there are in the Bay Area, but Moraga is less than a 30 minute drive from both Oakland and San Francisco.

If you are a Coug fan in the Bay Area, please, for the love of everything that is good and right, pony up $15 and get yourself into that gym.
