Incoming University of Southern Mississippi President Rodney Bennett has announced he has purchased 1,000 student tickets for the Golden Eagles' second round NIT game against Louisiana Tech, scheduled for 9 p.m. on Monday.
The tickets will be distributed to the first 1,000 students who show a valid Southern Miss ID at the student entrance to Reed Green Coliseum on Monday evening.
Students may begin lining up for the tickets at 7:30 p.m., with doors scheduled to open at 8 p.m., one hour prior to tipoff. Bennett secured funds for the 1,000-ticket purchase through private contributions. Once those tickets are given away, students will need to pay $5 at the ticket office.
