    Hopefully it'll be a CBS game. Alabama is considered by most pundits to be a preseason top 5 team next season. They will be the ultimate test of Gonzaga's three point defense. They jack up threes like crazy and hit a high percentage.

    The return game in 2022 will be played at the old Birmingham-Jefferson Civic Center (now called Legacy Arena - it seats 17,654) which has hosted many memorable NCAA tournament games. My co-worker said it was recently refurbished a bit:

    So I got onto my account at exactly 1200. Surprise, surprise - all of the sideline seats were sold. All I could get were corner seats as the best seats available. So how does that work? Is it possible all of the sideline seats could have sold in what would have been nearly a millisecond? Or was it a fiction and they were never available despite the GU advertising that they were?

    I ran in to the same thing. My thought is they planned to allocate a certain amount of seats to the ZAG members. They give you seat assignment not based on when you click, but based on your priority points (donations). They probably estimate that if you have a low amount of points (like I do) there wont' be enough sideline seats. I decided to go ahead and get corner seats, but I'll be real interested to see what is available on Tuesday (I think it is) when seats are available to the public. And not happy if there area a lot of sideline seats available.

    Attention! go to the brokers pages like Stub Hub or Spokane's own Tickets West. They buy blocks of tickets ans then sell the good spots...and the prices aren't all that much. Most of those type of companies grabbed the tickets. You can get some very very good seats from them.

    I have noticed preliminary ticket prices - they are outrages, even in the nose bleed section they are running about $300 each. Guess got to pay for the Kraken house!

    Assuming that’s resale sites?
