Wichita State's men's basketball team will play Tulsa at Intrust Bank Arena on Dec. 21.
WSU announced details for the game, which will be included in season-ticket packages, this morning. Single-game tickets go on sale Nov. 1 through the arena box office and Select-A-Seat.
"Wichita State is excited about the opportunity to be the first Division I basketball team to play in Intrust Bank Arena," Sexton said in a news release.
Reserved parking will be provided downtown for season-ticket holders with reserved spots at Koch Arena. Parking information and tickets for the Tulsa game will be mailed in mid-November.
"We were a little bit cautious prior to formally announcing this game so we could ensure that our season-ticket holders and donors would taken care of," Sexton said.
While WSU didn't announce details until today, moving the Tulsa game was expected. Even before the arena opened in January, Sexton said he wants to play one non-conference game each season downtown and coach Gregg Marshall regularly takes recruits to tour the 15,004-seat arena. The NCAA requires WSU to hold a game at Intrust Bank Arena in preparation for the 2011 NCAA women's basketball tournament games there in March.
Single-game tickets go on sale Nov. 1 at the Intrust Bank Arena box office, by calling 316-755-7328, online at selectaseat.com and at Select-A-Seat outlets.
