    Default Summit League Tickets

    Looks like single session tickets for the SLT will go on sale Tuesday, Feb. 26th at 10 A.M.. There are less than 80 lower level all session passes left, so I'm guessing those will go fast once the single sessions open up. Plenty in the upper level, but I'm surprised at how many upper level all session passes have been purchased. I would be surprised if the SLT attendance record isn't broken once again.

    Mods, you can move this to the "Summit League Tournament" section if you want.

    I hope you are correct on a record breaker but things need to line up to make that happen. Last year the match ups were perfect to do so. I'm not so sure things may fall in place this year.

    If USD men can at least win their first game, I think it will be close. If there's a men's SDSU/USD matchup in the first or second round, that would obviously help too. The women's side should be very well attended Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday. Overall, I just think with it being Daum's last SLT, I think SDSU attendance will be more than ever. The number of upper level all session passes that have been purchased is really impressive and I've got to believe that is from at least 75% SDSU fans, maybe closer to 90%. So the men's Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday sessions will be very well attended assuming things go according to plan.

    Here's some bad news that was mentioned by alumni organizers at a recent Sioux Empire Staters Club lunch. The Sheraton Hotel and other "neighboring businesses" are refusing to host this year's official, pregame gatherings of Jacks' fans during the Summit Tourney. Apparently there are too many of us. Which raises the question, does Sioux Falls really have the facilities to host a big event like this? The Sheraton and other "neighboring businesses" are risking teeing off the biggest fan base in South Dakota. That's very disappointing.

    Well, what are they supposed to do if our group is literally too big for them to handle? Tbh, SDSU or the alumni association should put something together in one of the convention center spots.

    Yep. Frankly the whole summit league should team up and designate areas in the large showroom at the cc. Instead of having something waste space and parking like the golf expo or what ever it is. Seems like over the weekend that the denny and cc and arena should be a priority for the tourney. Fan fest in arena alumni gatherings in the cc. On the weekend every fan base will be there.

    Didn't they do this already last year ? If I remember correctly, the Saturday rallies were in a couple of the smaller rooms, and on Monday and Tuesday moved across the hall to the bigger rooms.

    The golf expo moved off that date a couple of years ago. This year they hosted the golf expo out at the Pentagon in mid-Feb. Last year, there wasn't anything going on in the convention center and I thought SDSU alumni did utilize the convention center space - at least on Mon and Tues? Maybe that was the year before after the golf expo was over? I know USD has always held their gatherings in smaller convention center space since they joined the league.

    Short sighted on the part of the Sheraton but there is obviously reasons they don't want to do it as they know the drill. If they expect their bar area to not get overcrowded between sessions just because they aren't hosting the alumni gathering, they are sorely mistaken. People are going to flock there regardless of where the alumni gathering is hosted.
