BATON ROUGE - At his introductory press conference on Monday, new LSU men's basketball coach Johnny Jones said he wanted to "bring back the passion" to the Maravich Center.
LSU fans can join in helping Jones and the Tigers bring back the passion to the Maravich Center next year by taking advantage of $12 deposits for new season tickets for the 2012-13 season. The $12 promotion is for new season tickets only as season ticket renewals for existing ticket holders will be available in July.
The $12 deposits are a tribute to Jones and the number he wore during his playing days with the Tigers. Jones remains the only person in LSU history to both play (1981) and coach (1986) in a Final Four.
As an incentive to take advantage of the $12 deposits, LSU will randomly select 12 fans who sign up for the "Bring Back the Passion" promotion, to win a pair of $12 season tickets for the 2012-13 season. In order to be eligible to win one of 12 pair of $12 season tickets for next year, fans must submit their deposit by May 12.
Fans can submit their deposit by either calling the LSU ticket office at 800.960.8587 or logging on to the internet at www.LSUtix.net.
