Limited Tickets Available For New Year's Eve Clash With Saint Joseph's

Dec. 27, 2005

SPOKANE, Wash. - Tickets for Gonzaga University's men's basketball game New Year's Eve at 3 p.m. against Saint Joseph's University will go on sale to Bulldog Club members at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.

The Bulldogs will be facing Saint Joseph's for the fourth time in the last five seasons with the Hawks making their second visit to Spokane. This will also mark the third time the teams have met each other on New Year's Eve. In Saint Joseph's last visit to Spokane on Dec. 31, 2002, the Hawks ended the Bulldogs 29-game home winning streak in The Kennel as Jameer Nelson scored 34 points including the game winner with 8 seconds remaining as Saint Joseph's won 79-78 in overtime.

Gonzaga won the inaugural meeting between the two schools in much the same fashion as Dan Dickau drained a 3-pointer with time running out on the clock to give Gonzaga an 83-80 win over Saint Joseph's in Philadelphia on Dec. 31, 2001. The third meeting between the schools was played at Madison Square Garden as Saint Joseph's knocked off the Bulldogs 73-66 in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic on Nov. 14, 2003. Saint Joseph's would go on to finish the regular-season undefeated and No. 1 in the nation while Gonzaga finished the regular-season ranked No. 3 in the nation.

Gonzaga officials remind fans there are some changes in the ticket policy this season. Bulldog Club members must be at the $200 level or above to purchase tickets and no walk-up ticket sales will be permitted this season. All tickets will be sold via phone order only beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday by calling the Bulldog Ticket Office at (509) 323-6000. Tickets are $20 each and must be secured with either a Visa or MasterCard.

Any tickets remaining at noon will also be made available to the general public.
