That's not achieved by social media campaigns.

My 2 cents from the cheap seats.


Cost to attend WBB games is exactly the same as soccer, volleyball, and softball. Zilch, nada, zero, but yet those teams provide some of the most entertaining and successful programs in the department. Toward the end of the WBB season, I dare say their attendance was possibly more than MBB, counting actual butts in seats and the women don’t provide a meal or reserved seats.

It’s amazing how winning will get folks there.

Simply put, you don't increase pricing for a bad product. It's bad business. Ideally the price of the product should be commensurate with the quality of the product and commensurate with supply and demand. It's the reason why the price of a Porsche is higher than the price of Chevy Malibu and why gas is cheap now.

The decision to raise ticket prices for men's basketball defies economic common sense.

So do I understand that a chance to sell a few seats to newbies supersedes all the loyalty, dedication, and support that certain TRUE fans have demonstrated for many many years?

Damn! The think coach can recruit as well as she coaches.
In an imperfect world, absolute truth is divisive. There's no unity in truth. Decide then whether truth before unity or unity before truth?

First commit for 2021 is Nicole Azar, a tall shooting guard. Her mother is her HS coach and has been so successful that she is in the Gwinnett Ga. HOF. Nicole has had offers from schools such as Marshall, Georgia State, and even an offer from UAB. Gifted player and another "good get".
