2008 Stadium Shootout tickets on sale
Tickets for the historic 2008 Stadium Shootout featuring Louisville against Minnesota and Brigham Young taking on Arizona State will go on sale nationwide at 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 27. Tickets will be available online through www.ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster retail locations. Games are set for Dec. 20, 2008 at the University of Phoenix Stadium at noon.
The games will mark the first ever basketball held at the renown University of Phoenix Stadium, home of Super Bowl XLII. The double header could set the attendance record for a basketball game in the state of Arizona and may be a major step in attracting the Men's Final Four to the Grand Canyon State.
All four teams taking the court in the inaugural event at the stadium won at least 20 games and participated in a post-season tournament during the 2007-08 season. The Louisville Cardinals, led by head coach Rick Pitino, will take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers and head coach Tubby Smith in a game that will pair two championship coaches and former colleagues against one another for the first time since Smith left Kentucky for Minnesota in 2007.
The other contest features an Arizona homecoming, as Arizona State will face off against Brigham Young University led by former Mesa High star and Arizona Republic high school player of the year, Lee Cummard.
