Utah State men's basketball earned the Mountain West's automatic bid to the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament following its run in the MW Championship as it defeated seventh-seeded New Mexico 75-70 in the quarterfinals, 11th-seeded Wyoming 89-82 in the semifinals and top-seeded and fifth-ranked San Diego State 59-56 in the championship game.
Utah State will learn its seed, opponent and regional site Sunday afternoon as it is making its 22nd NCAA Tournament appearance all-time, including its 10th since 2000.
Utah State Athletics will begin taking ticket reservations for the upcoming NCAA Tournament on Tuesday, March 10, at 10 a.m. (MT) with a deadline of noon on Friday, March 13. Fans will then be notified Sunday evening if their ticket request has been fulfilled. Orders will be taken in-person at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum Ticket Office, over the phone by calling 1-888-USTATE-1, or online at UtahStateAggies.com at https://bit.ly/2IvOwAT
Due to a limited number of tickets made available by the NCAA to participating schools, USU Athletics can't guarantee your request. Up to four tickets will be allocated to each customer. All requests will be based off of Aggies Unlimited priority points.
- Available tickets are $100 per seat.
- The limit is four (4) tickets per account.
- The tickets requested must be for the account holder only (no "third-party" will-call).
- All tickets must be picked up from the tournament site in person with a valid photo ID (more information will be given to purchasers when location is confirmed).
- If Utah State advances to the second round, fans who purchase tickets automatically will be charged for the second-round tickets.
Anyone who does not qualify or is unsuccessful in purchasing tickets through Utah State Athletics can still try to secure tickets via the NCAA and Ticketmaster.
