Thanks for the info. Is this available to anyone? In years past, it seemed like the only pre-sales were for season ticket holders and/or Spokane residents. Also, how did you get this info? I don't see it on the Ticketmaster.com webpage or the GU Athletics/tickets webpage. Just curious because I annually attend BiS and am always amazed at how little info/promo goes out to Zag alums about how to get tickets in advance other than the usual purchase when tickets go on sale to the general public

I got it through the BIS mailing list. I think if you're signed up on the email list they sent out the info this morning.

Advance BIS tickets are available to anybody with a pulse and a credit card regardless of location.

My email from the BIS people offers another password : BIS10

The email also offers this link:

http://cts.vresp.com/c/?IdolSportsEntertainm/b16ebd6d32/445bbcc19b/e218c8c006

Again according to the email I got, advance tickets are on sale from 10:00 am Wednesday the 12th until 10:00 pm Thursday the 13th.

I think this "presale" is happening after the super secret Bulldog Club presale has been completed, but if the last couple of years are any indication, if you have the cash to spend on front row tickets you will be sitting in as good - or better - seats as any wealthy big time GU booster.

Good luck, and Go Bulldogs!

thanks. I'll have to find out how to get on the BiS eblast notification list. This info alone pays for my GUB subscription.

I noticed the marketing materials this year are sort of lowbrow. A good shot of Pangos (he the face of the team now? I am neither here nor there on it, he is the PG afterall...) and then some K-State and GU graphics (skewed a bit to fit the ad space - way to go, SR!).

Last year's was better with the comic book look with Carter, E, Rob, etc.

It still has to stick in the craw of UW fans and Romar that the Battle In Seattle has nothing to do with the University of Washington, right there in Seattle.

How would we feel if UW came over to Spokane and captured our audience and TV space for "Dawg Plan in Spokane" or some such catchy name. Even for just one night we would say, "what are you doing over here?"

I love it! We are the best hoops in the state now. Especially since the Sonics are gone!

When the BIS first started, we loved to wake up in our Seattle hotel room and read the front page newspaper coverage of BIS activities in the Seattle newspaper(s) - the opposing team was usually a huge national draw, and GU was coming off the Elite 8 and getting a lot of press. The first few years of the BIS were the national CBS Saturday game as I recall - not just a regional or sports network game. And fans for both teams were all over downtown Seattle in their respective colors - at the Pike Place Market, at the retail stores, at the restaurants, etc.

In the past 5-6 years the BIS has fallen off the radar of Seattle press. I don't think the BIS has made the front page of the Seattle Times sports section in the past couple years, let alone the front page of the entire paper like it did in the good old days. The last time I saw a good showing of colors by a GU opponent was the Tenn. game, and that has been a few years.

GU needs to go far in the 2013 Tournament and we need a Kentucky-like opponent for the BIS to bring the prestige of the event back to the national spotlight. If that happens, then the UW folks will be jealous. For now, not so much.

Go Bulldogs!

The economy gets worse and worse, BIS tickets get more and more expensive. I remember sitting court-side for $90/ticket, now that only gets you top of the lower section. I'm still going, just wanted to complain :)

Doesn't the Battle in Seattle draw the largest single game crowd of basketball fans in the Seattle area each year (since the Sonics left)?

Yes definitely. The only thing that has come close was last year when Seattle U played a home game (Key Arena) against UW. I believe they had around 11k.

While I do agree with you the lustre has worn off, it still must stick in the craw.

But still, my point is, we rule Washington right now. We know it, the media knows it, the state knows it and above all ROMAR KNOWS IT. Till he plays us again, he avoids playing for the soul of the sport.

Romar is a decent coach, but he is playing along with politics in light of a disastrous decade for UW football. I think after their 2008 (0-12) football season they were trying to keep their whole AD from tailspinning. Romar had to save UW. I think he is opting for not losing to Gonzaga as the best option. If UW can have a couple solid seasons in football, UW will loosen up and play us.

The BIS should be UW against Gonzaga to make it relevant. That would be a true "Battle in Seattle".
