Rock the Dome with Coach Heath and USF Basketball

February 19, 2010

TAMPA - On the edge of the postseason bubble, the Bulls men's basketball team needs to take home court advantage at the Sun Dome to the next level with your support over the next three weekends.

University of South Florida men's basketball coach Stan Heath and the Bulls are asking fans to Rock the Dome for the final three home games of the season, starting with Saturday's matchup with St. John's, followed by the Feb. 27 rematch with Providence, then the final game of the regular season, against UConn on March 6.

"This is what we've all been waiting for, meaningful end-of-season games that will determine how we all remember this special team," said Heath. "So get to the Sun Dome, bring your friends, and be loud!"

Fans can purchase tickets for the game by calling 1-800-GoBulls or at Ticketmaster.com.

"I was very excited with the fans at the USF-Cincinnati game," added Heath. "I was very pleased with the turn out, very pleased with the energy level and I know that we still have room to grow, and I think we can.  That was a huge lift for us. We needed that."

A few ticket options for USF basketball include:

Free Kid and Student Tickets - As always, USF offers free tickets to all students, high school age and younger, to every men's and women's basketball game. The tickets, located in all sections, must be purchased on game day at Gate 3 of the Sun Dome Ticket Office.   

Rock the Dome - Fans who purchase a ticket to both the Feb. 20 Noon matchup against St. John's and the Feb. 27 game vs. Providence, a 7 p.m. tip off, will receive a free ticket to the last regular season home game of the year, the much-anticipated game against UConn on March 6. 

All-you-can-eat Seats - With the purchase of one south end ticket (second level for men and lower level for women) you will receive a voucher that will allow for "All-U-Can-Eat" hot dogs, popcorn, pretzels and soft drinks for the entirety of the game. The ticket is $20 for men's games and $15 ($12 youth) for women's games and can be purchased by calling 1-800-GoBulls.
