BASKETBALL SEASON TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

Stony Brook, N.Y. - Season tickets for 2010-11 Stony Brook University men's and women's basketball are now on sale. Full season ticket plans are available, giving Seawolves fans the opportunity to see their hometown team in action at historic and intimate Pritchard Gymnasium.

Coming off the best season in its 11-year Division I history, the men's team will play 13 home games. Head coach Steve Pikiell will lead the Seawolves into action against an exciting non-conference schedule including a match-up against Patriot League champion Lehigh on Dec. 1. The defending America East regular season championships will also face off against a challenging eight-game America East schedule, which will be announced at a later date.

The Seawolves set Division I program records for overall wins (22) and conference wins (13) in 2009-10 and won 10 straight games to clinch the America East regular season crown. Under the guidance of Pikiell, who was selected as the America East Conference Coach of the Year, the Seawolves also earned their first ever Division I postseason berth, hosting the University of Illinois in the first round of the 2010 National Invitation Tournament in front of the largest crowd in program history.

Head coach Michele Cherry and Stony Brook's women's team will also play 13 home contests including its home opener against Hofstra (Nov. 18) and a match-up with Iona on Dec. 5. Both teams advanced to the postseason last year. Stony Brook advanced to the America East semifinals last season for the first time since 2006 and return 10 letter-winners including senior Kirsten Jeter (Elmont, N.Y), a 2009 All-America East second team selection.

Please note that ALL Season ticket packages are now open to the general public and can be purchased at the Stony Brook University ticket office, by phone at 631-632-WOLF or online at www.goseawolves.org.
