NCAA Hoops Weekend Preview-Jan.26


With Men’s NCAA hoops hitting its stride in conference play, there’s no better place to be than in a Division I arena this weekend. There are plenty of huge rivalry games this Saturday and fortunately for hoops fans, we’ve got great seats and amazing experiences for two of the biggest, as TCU hosts in-state foe Baylor and Arizona State hosts the most storied program in college hoops history, UCLA. You won’t want to miss this action!

UCLA Bruins vs Arizona State Sun Devils-Saturday, Jan. 26

In years past, many fans would have written the Sun Devils off in a game against the Bruins, but ASU is off to one of its best starts in years coming into Saturday’s match-up with UCLA and is looking to make a serious run in the Pac-12 Conference this season.

Along with the Oregon Ducks, the Devils are one of the most improved teams, not just in the conference, but in the nation. Freshman sensation Jahii Carson has lived up to the hype and more, leading ASU with 17.3 points per game and 5.2 assists. The speedy sharp-shooting puts up the numbers, but also puts on a show each night and he will certainly give UCLA nightmares if they don’t prepare for what he can bring to the game.

The Ultimate Experiences for this game are all sold out, but if you act fast like Carson, you can get your hands on the Premium Experience, which features two game tickets in Section J at the renowned Wells Fargo Arena, which you will also get a pregame guided tour of before tip-off. Come cheer on the Devils as they aim for a Pac-12 championship and a berth in this year’s NCAA tournament!

Baylor Bears vs TCU Horned Frogs-Saturday, Jan. 26

The Frogs will look to exact revenge on the Bears, who defeated TCU just two weeks ago in Waco by a score of 51-40. The Frogs will also be after their first win in the Big-12 this season, after losing their last five games dating back Jan. 5.

It’s been a rough start to the 2012-2013 season for TCU, but there’s still plenty of time to turn things around and it could very well start this weekend against Baylor. Daniel-Meyer Coliseum will be rocking for this rivalry game and the crowd should get the Frogs energized for the upset.

And it’s not too late to be a part of that sea of purple because there are still Premium and Ultimate Experiences available for this Big-12 midseason clash. Enjoy fantastic seats and free gameday gear as part of the deal and help the Frogs down the Bears in the teams’ second of three meetings this year!
