Women’s Basketball Sets Open Practice Date for Season Ticketholders/Fastbreakers

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – The defending Big West Conference Tournament Champion UC Santa Barbara women's basketball team is excited to announce that it will hold its annual open practice for its season ticketholders/Fastbreakers on Saturday, Oct. 13 at the Thunderdome.

The open practice will serve as UCSB season ticketholders/Fastbreakers first chance to catch the 2012-13 Gauchos in action and meet the squad. The day's proceedings will include light beverages and snacks in the morning and will culminate with a luncheon.

New this season, every UCSB women's basketball season ticketholder will also receive a Fastbreakers membership. Season tickets prices start as low as $99 with the new 'Legends' ticket. UCSB is also proud to announce the "Thunderdome35" campaign, a two-year celebration that will highlight the great players and moments in the building's history, including the special commemorative season ticket.  

If you have yet to purchase your season tickets and register for your accompanying Fastbreakers membership, the UCSB Athletics Ticket staff will be on hand at the Thunderdome on Oct. 13 selling season tickets so fans don't have to miss out on this great event.  You can also buy now by visiting the Ticket Office in the Intercollegiate Athletics Building on campus, by calling (805) 893-UCSB or by clicking here.

Included in the Fastbreaker membership is access to the Oct. 13 open practice; the opportunity to attend postgame chalk talks held by head coach Carlene Mitchell and the Gaucho coaching staff; updates and emails from Coach Mitchell; discounts on bus trips to road contests and other discounts on women's basketball events throughout the year; and a free gift.

The Gauchos will open their 2012-13 campaign on Nov. 5 when they host Vanguard at the Thunderdome for a 7 p.m. game.
