Get loud, get proud, get your tickets for West Virginia before ticket distribution.

Sunday’s are the busiest, and we know that you’d rather sleep in, do your homework (maybe?), or watch football at 10am instead of sit outside McCarthy in the balmy 37 degree weather (perhaps amidst a few snow drifts left over from Friday).  Well, you’re in luck.  For one game only, there is a way to get your ticket to watch Gonzaga open a can on West Virginia (#rematch #NCAATournament) on our first national broadcast of the season, which kicks off ESPN’s 24 hours of College Basketball Tip-Off Marathon, WITHOUT GOING TO TICKET DISTRIBUTION ON SUNDAY!!!!  Here’s the deal:

The first 100 student to the volleyball game on Saturday at 12NOON vs San Diego will be wrist-banded by the athletics staff and after the match will have their cards activated for Monday’s game vs. WVU.

This is a great opportunity to support our favorite Zags Volleyball players in their quest to take down the Torreros.  Get loud, get proud, and get your tickets before ticket distribution.  There’s never been a better time to #ZagUp

Also, get excited.  This is the greatest excuse/justification for an all-nighter ever known to man.
