Jim Larrañaga is in his third season at the helm of the Miami Hurricanes basketball program and is lauded as the best coaches and recruiters in the nation. As a result of his first two seasons in Coral Gables, we have set a record for basketball season tickets for the 2013-14 campaign. The 3,645 season tickets this year surpasses the program’s previous record of 3,621 set in 2002. That may not seem like a big deal, but it’s really a huge deal.
Rion Brown, Donnavan Kirk, Manu Lecomte, Raphael Akpejiori, Tonye Jekiri, James Kelly are just some of the names to watch in 2013-14. Season tickets are still on sale for the reigning ACC champions. Miami’s home ACC schedule includes matchups against Boston College, Duke, Florida State, NC State, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.
“The South Florida community has embraced Hurricanes basketball like never before and is helping us build champions by making the BankUnited Center a very difficult venue for visiting teams,” said Blake James, director of athletics. “The support of our fans buying season tickets has been accelerated by the hard work, success and community outreach from Coach Larrañaga, his staff, the team and our external division, and we are very proud of the record sales.”
With prices starting at $200 per ticket, the red package is the best value as the owner will get the full season for the same price you’d pay to buy the four premier games on an individual-game basis. Fans can also buy the green tickets for $600, compared to $765 if buying on single-game basis, or the $900 orange package, which includes seats where single-game tickets are not available.
It’s the holiday season. Are you still looking for that perfect gift? Pick up any four games of your choice and save up to 30 percent off the single-game prices. Plan prices are just $44 for select ACC games.
