Xavier University wants to Fill the Bowl

February 8, 2011

On February 23, the Xavier Musketeers women’s basketball team, ranked 7th in the nation, will play its final home game versus George Washington at 7:00 pm. To honor their magnificent talent and spirit, Xavier is offering special pricing in an effort to fill at least the bowl of the Cintas Center with supportive fans.

Tickets for this game are specially priced at $1 each. Hot dogs and popcorn are also $1 each. This means a family of four can enjoy the game and have snacks for less than the cost of a single ticket to a popular movie. Plus you can experience the excitement of a live basketball game featuring one of the nation’s best teams. Dollar tickets are available for purchase one hour before the game on February 23 at the Cintas Center box office. A group rate of $4 per ticket is available by calling 513-745-3378.

Show your support for and appreciation of the hard work of these talented and dedicated young women. This is the last home game for four Xavier senior women:
