Aug. 21, 2008

Fans' first chance to see the 2008-09 Xavier basketball teams on the new Cintas Center hardwood will be held on Friday, October 24. Festivities will begin at 7 p.m. and admission is free.

The men's roster will be split into a blue and white team and will scrimmage for two ten minute halves. The women's team will scrimmage at halftime of the men's scrimmage for one fifteen minute period with a running clock.

94.9 FM The Sound will be on-site with the Sound Van and will also be distributing giveaway items to fans.

Fans will also have an opportunity to pick their season ticket seats for the 2008-09 season and for years to come. With season tickets available for as low as $250, the "Select-A-Seat" event allows fans to purchase tickets on the spot, and test drive their new seats for Xavier basketball.

Cintas Center Ticket Office staff will be on hand to guide fans to the available seats, which will be identified by brightly colored tags. Fans unable to attend "Select-A-Seat" are encouraged to click here or call (513) 745-3411 ext. 7 to purchase season tickets.

This will be the men's basketball team's only public appearance before its exhibition opener November 7 against Findlay.
