MORAGA, Calif. -- Single game tickets to watch the Saint Mary's men's basketball team against its nine non-conference opponents went on sale today through the SMC Athletic Ticket Office.
The Gaels are looking to earn a fourth-consecutive championship ring and third-straight West Coast Conference regular-season title. The team returns four starters from last year's side that won both the league's regular-season and tournament titles for the first time in school history.
A variety of single-game, group and team ticket packages are available by clicking the tickets link on SMCGaels.com or by calling the Athletic Ticket Office at (925) 631-GoTx (4689). Season ticket packages also remain available.
Saint Mary's opens the upcoming season on Saturday, Nov. 10 with a 7 p.m. contest against the Seawolves of Sonoma State. Following a tough road trip to Utah State, the Gaels return home on Sunday, Nov. 18 for a 5 p.m. game against Eastern Washington.
After the team spends its Thanksgiving weekend playing some excellent competition at the DIRECTV Classic in Anaheim, the Gaels host Cal Poly on Dec. 1 at 7 p.m.
Other non-league games in December include Jackson State (Dec. 11), future league rival Pacific (Dec. 19), Rhode Island (Dec. 27), Yale (Dec. 30) and Harvard (Dec. 31, ESPN). The Gaels are also scheduled to host a ESPN Bracketbuster game on the weekend of Feb. 23.
