BATON ROUGE - New season ticket deposits for the 2013-14 LSU men's basketball season will go on sale Saturday online at a cost of just $13 to give fans the opportunity to purchase tickets after a successful first season for the LSU Tigers under head coach Johnny Jones.
The Tigers and the Ole Miss Rebels meet in the regular season finale Saturday at the Maravich Center. Game time is 12:30 p.m. with senior day ceremonies set to begin at 12:25 p.m. The Tigers are 9-8 in the SEC and 18-10 overall.
The deposits are for new season tickets only and will be available online at www.LSUtix.net starting on Saturday.
Coach Jones, his staff and players on the 2012-13 team have helped lay the foundation for the future of the LSU basketball program with a successful opening year featuring entertaining offense and a defense that has given many teams trouble all season long. Four times, LSU came from double digit deficits to claim victories and scored over 70 points 17 times.
In addition, LSU has been able in the fall signing period to put together a recruiting class that has been ranked in the top 10 by all of the major recruiting services. Included in that group is local star Jarell Martin, whose Madison Prep team captured the Class B State Championship Wednesday night.
Present season ticket holders are reminded that season ticket renewals will be available this summer. Season ticket prices will start at just $100.
The deadline to place a $13 and receive priority consideration for new season tickets is Aug. 31, 2013. For further information on the $13 deposits contact the LSU Athletics Ticket Office at 225-578-2184.
