From August 16-September 17, Appalachian State University basketball fans can beat the rush to the court by purchasing basketball tickets at a Fast Break special discount.

For one month only, 2010-11 season tickets for Appalachian men’s AND women’s basketball games at the Holmes Center can be purchased for just $75 — half the price of season tickets purchased after Sept. 17. 

Appalachian’s hoops squads enjoyed unprecedented success last season, combining for 47 victories, 25 of which came on the Holmes Center hardwood. In 2010-11, Southern Conference Player of the Year Donald Sims returns to help the men defend the 2010 SoCon North Division championship and all five starters are back from the women’s squad which claimed the inaugural Women’s Basketball Invitational title.

For more information or to take advantage of the Fast Break special, call (828) 262-2079 or visit the ASU athletics ticket office in the Holmes Center (9 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Friday).
