UMES BASKETBALL SEASON TICKETS NOW ON SALE
Oct. 20, 2011
PRINCESS ANNE, Md. - Hawk basketball season tickets are now on sale for the 2011-2012 season. For just $100.00, fans can see all 11 men's and 11 women's home games this season. That is 22 games for less than $5.00 per contest.
The slate for the men includes the Hawks three non-conference games against local rivals American and Navy as well as Mercy. Also included are strong Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) matchups, including matches against Coppin State, Morgan State and Howard, plus the final home game against new MEAC member Savannah State.
"We have again presented ourselves with a great challenge in this year's schedule," said men's basketball head coach Frankie Allen. "Our non-conference contests more than prepare us for the rough and rigorous Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference season."
The women's team will host Mount Saint Mary's, Canisus and Lincoln (Pa.) in non-conference play plus a full conference slate of MEAC teams. Local teams Coppin State and Morgan State will come to Princess Anne, and along with Savannah State wrap up a three game home stand to close the regular season in the William P. Hytche Athletic Center.
