CU men’s basketball season tickets sold out

After coming off of another successful season with a second straight NCAA Tournament appearance, season tickets for the men’s basketball games are sold out for the first time in school history.

To put things into perspective, the maximum capacity in the Coors Events Center is 11,064 seats and 7,160 of those seats are reserved for season ticket holders. In other words, at least 65 percent of the stadium has been sold out for every home game of the 2013-2014 season.

As a result, single game tickets for home games will be limited. The pre-sale for single game tickets starts on Oct. 14 and will only be available to fans who signed up for the free Colorado Athletics electronic newsletter, Buffs Blast. The remaining tickets will be available to the general public on Oct. 15 at 8 a.m.

The pre-sale for the high demand games like Kansas and Arizona will be based on donor priority points. It will be difficult for those without season tickets to get individual game tickets for these games.

In head coach Tad Boyle’s first three seasons with the Buffs, Boyle has a cumulative record of 69-38.

In that time, 86.3 percent of those victories have been at the Coors Events Center. Since Boyle took over as coach, the Buffs have an overall record of 44-7 in Boulder.

In his first season, Boyle led the Buffs to the National Invitation Tournament for the first time since 2006. One year later, he led the team to their first NCAA appearance since 2003, which he did again in the 2012-2013 season.

Colorado begins its 2013-2014 season on Nov. 8 against Baylor University in Dallas.
