- On pace to shatter the program's single-season records for both average and total home attendance, Baylor Athletics is offering a special eight-game Lady Bear Stretch Run package for fans who want to assure themselves of a ticket for top-ranked Baylor's five remaining home women's basketball games as well as first- and second-round NCAA Tournament games which will be played this March in the Ferrell Center.
Priced at $95 for adults and $50 for youths (age 2-18), the Lady Bears' Stretch Run deal includes a ticket to Baylor's remaining Big 12 home games against No. 13 Oklahoma (Feb. 2), Texas (Feb. 12), No. 5/6 Texas A&M (Feb. 14), Kansas State (Feb. 23) and Missouri (March 3), as well as Waco's first- and second-round NCAA Tournament games, March 20 and 22. Baylor is assured of beginning its 2011 Final Four run in Waco if selected when the Field of 64 is unveiled, March 14.
The Lady Bear Stretch Run package affords fans a 15 percent savings off an adult ticket and a 20 percent savings on a youth ticket.
The top-ranked Lady Bears, who currently rank eighth nationally in home attendance with an average of 7,469 fans over its first 14 home dates, have already recorded the largest (10,569 vs. Tennessee, an all-time arena record) and third-largest (10,379 vs. Texas Tech) Ferrell Center crowds in program history this season. Baylor, which has already reached the 100,000-mark in home attendance for the sixth straight season, needs to draw just 17,985 fans in its remaining five home games to break the program's single-season total home attendance record of 122,550 established last year.
Fans may purchase the Lady Bears' Stretch Run package from now through Feb. 2 either in-person at the Ferrell Center box office or by calling the Baylor Athletic Ticket Office at 254.710.1000.
