Michigan basketball experiencing best ticket sales in 18 years

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan Wolverines basketball selling most tickets since 1995.

The Michigan Wolverines are selling basketball tickets better than they have in 18 years. With a preseason No. 5 ranking and a newly renovated Crisler Center, ticket sales are the best they have been since 1995.

With one week remaining before the Wolverines begin their season against Slippery Rock on Nov. 9, the Michigan athletic department says they have already sold over 10,000 season ticket or equivalent packages. With only a 12,693-seat arena, the 10,000 number is "unbelievable" according to Hunter Lochmann, senior associate athletic director and chief marketing officer for Michigan.

The final deadline for purchasing season tickets for Michigan is Nov. 8. The Wolverines hope to sell out at least 15 of their 20 homes games, last season they sold out eight. Michigan went 15-1 at home last season and were Big Ten regular season co-champions with an overall record of 24-10, going 13-5 in Big Ten games.
