    VCU announced this will air on MASN.

    The Mason ticket office sent a mass email saying there's a limited number of tickets available. I logged into my Mason account to purchase but nothing came up. I assume those with higher Patriot Club points are getting first dibs. Smart to keep the riff raff, like me, out - so I can't blame them.

    Trick is just go to ticket office tomorrow an hour or so before and they will probably have 25-40 tickets left. I truly doubt it’s actually sold out.

    Shhhhhhhh. I know most VCU grads can't read but the last thing we need is their valedictorians who are literate seeing this and putting out a video to have them come en masse.

    I encourage anyone going to make sure they have the text message number handy for help in the event that they see a VCU fan sitting in their seat or doing something not supposed to.

    God knows you don't want to approach them in the wild, who knows the last time they bathed.

    usually if you just give them some spare change they'll go away

    I was able to secure tickets for the game tomorrow night. Looking forward to seeing the team in person, maintaining a safe distance from everyone while properly masked. It will be weird being at a game. Go Rams.

    lucky! I have been looking too, no dice.


    They just opened them up, I've been refreshing the page. I saw about 10 other seats.

    Edit: via my Mason athletics account. I bought tickets through them last year. There doesn't appear to be any seats on the general ticketmaster site. "


    It would be nice if the Mason AD actually attempted to preclude VCU fans from buying tickets at EBA.

    In the current state of our program, I think it makes sense to let other fans in. It's not like we should keep our lackluster product all to ourselves...

    All you have to do is sign up to a mason profile and you’re good. Had a fight with AD about VCU in the gold room. That they can limit and prevent. Can’t limit people buying tickets since our priority points fan (the few that there are) won’t buy it. I thought I would see less of an elderly crowd at the two games I’ve been to. I was wrong so they seem to be the only demographic still supporting the team in person

    as soon as I read your reply I rushed over to their website and thanks to your tip there will be two more Rams in the crowd, thank you sir!"


    Perhaps, the AD should start paying Gopher+RamFan a commision.

    Yes, I was able to grab tickets thankfully.

    I thought Mason might limit tickets to season ticket holders or utilize a points system, but I imagine the AD is strapped for cash (like all others this year) so selling remaining tickets to anyone was paramount. I'm just happy to watch my first sports in person since the pandemic began.

    We've switched to venmo due to the pandemic.

    The State of Mason Basketball Apathy
    Not a single game day post yet in a Mason/VCU game thread. This has to be a record for apathy on these boards, exceeding even the Hewitt days.

    So sad.
