Men’s college basketball is coming to Kent in November.
Tickets are on sale for the Seattle University Redhawks against the Evergreen State College Geoducks game at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 28 at the ShoWare Center.
Tickets are $11 for general admission, $17 for reserved club seats and $25 for a selected few end zone courtside seats.
ShoWare Center has hosted several high school basketball games over the last three years, but never a NCAA Division I men’s or women’s basketball contest. That will change when the Seattle takes on Evergreen State from Olympia in a nonconference game.
Seattle finished 11-20 last season and will join the Western Athletic Conference next season under third-year head coach Cameron Dollar. Evergreen State, an NAIA school which plays in the Cascade Collegiate Conference, was 8-20 last season.
Seattle opens its season Saturday, Nov. 12 with a home exhibition game at KeyArena against Pacific Lutheran. The Redhawks are led by senior Aaron Broussard. The Federal Way High School graduate was named as a preseason All-Independent First Team after leading the team last season with 14.5 points and 7.7 rebounds a game.
ESPN 710 Seattle will carry the Kent game on radio in the Seattle area with Dave Grosby and Gary Hill, Jr., calling the action.
