No price increase on tickets at 2013-14 XU home games

October 29, 2013

     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana will play its first basketball games this week, and the top price for a ticket to a home game remains $10.
     Dannton Jackson, XU's interim athletics director and in his 11th season as coach of the Gold Rush, announced the pricing Tuesday.
     The XU men will begin their season at 7 p.m. Friday at home against Carver College of Atlanta. It will be Xavier's second season in the Convocation Center, a $25 million facility which seats nearly 4,000 for basketball.
     Adult tickets will cost $10. Xavier will offer free admission to:
     •  Students with a valid XU ID.
     •  XU faculty and staff.
     •  Children age 12 and younger.
     •  Coaches with a valid LHSAA/LHSCA membership card.
     •  School teams, which must contact Xavier at least 24 hours before a game. Schools may contact Jackson at (504) 520-5448 to reserve seating at men's games and coach Bo Browder at (504) 520-7333 for seating at women's games.
     The Convocation Center will open one hour before all home games.
     The XU women will open Saturday on the road — a neutral-site game at 6 p.m. against Langston in Grand Prairie, Texas — and play their first home game at 4 p.m. on Nov. 9 against Spring Hill.
     Starting times for the Crosstown Classic doubleheader against Dillard on Jan. 25 have been pushed back two hours to 5 p.m. (women) and 7 p.m. (men).
     Both XU teams won Gulf Coast Athletic Conference regular-season championships and qualified for NAIA national tournaments in 2012-13. The women finished 24-6, and the men were 24-8.
