The bracket has been set for the 2013 Horizon League Men's Basketball Championship, with Valparaiso earning the #1 seed as the league's regular season champion. Tickets are on sale now for Friday's second-round action and Saturday's semifinals at the ARC.
The Crusaders will play in Saturday's second semifinal, live on ESPNU at 7:30 p.m. Second-seeded Detroit will play in the first semifinal, which will tip off at 5 p.m. and will be televised on a tape-delayed basis following the second semifinal.
Friday's second-round games will also tip off at 5 p.m., with the first game featuring third-seeded Wright State against sixth-seeded Youngstown State. The second-round matchup between fourth-seeded Green Bay and fifth-seeded UIC will tip off at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased for Friday and Saturday by visiting http://www.valpoathletics.com/tickets/, calling 219-464-5233 or by visiting the Valparaiso University Ticket Office, located in the main lobby of the ARC (extended hours of 10 a.m.-7 p.m. this week). Tickets for Friday's pair of second-round games are $10 general admission seating for the session, while groups of 10 or more are $7 each and Horizon League students are free with their student ID.
Tickets for Saturday's semifinals are $30 for chairbacks, $20 for bleachers (both upper and lower), $15 apiece for groups of 10 or more (upper bleachers only), and $10 for Horizon League students with ID. Should Valpo win on Saturday and advance to host Tuesday's championship game, tickets would go on sale at the ticket office and online immediately Saturday evening and would be the same prices as the semifinal session.
