Tickets for the Baylor men's basketball team's first-ever Sweet 16 appearance against Saint Mary's at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas, on Friday, March 26 are currently available on-line at www.NCAA.com/mbbtickets.
"I encourage every member of Baylor Nation to get to Reliant Stadium this weekend," said Baylor Director of Athletics Ian McCaw. "We expect that ticket demand will be high and encourage our fans to go on-line at the above address to purchase tickets now as we do not anticipate we will receive enough tickets to satisfy all the requests from the Baylor family."
