COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio State men's basketball team will play Arizona at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Thursday, March 28 in the West Regional Semifinal of the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
For the West Regional games, a limited number of all-session tickets will be made available via a lottery through the Ohio State Athletics Ticket Office. All-session tickets include two games Thursday, March 28 and one game Saturday, March 30.
The ticket lottery will begin at 9 p.m. Sunday for men's basketball seat license holders, suite holders and public season ticket holders as well as Ohio State students, faculty and staff who purchased men's basketball season ticket packages. Seat license holders, suite holders and public season ticket holders will be eligible to enter the lottery for up to four all-session tickets. Each faculty/staff season ticket holder will be eligible to enter the lottery for two all-session tickets. Students will be eligible to enter for one all-session ticket, or two if married. All lottery entries must be submitted by 5 p.m. Monday to be considered.
Lottery entries will be accepted online only at www.ohiostatebuckeyes.com/tickets. All ticket holders eligible to enter will receive detailed instructions Sunday night via e-mail to the address on record in their ticket account. These instructions will include ticket prices, online entry instructions and ticket pick-up information. Because of the limited time frame, all tickets will be held for will-call pickup in Los Angeles. Tickets must be picked up by the original ticket holder, who will be required to show a valid photo ID to claim the tickets.
Those with questions may contact the Ohio State Athletics Ticket Office at 1-800-GO-BUCKS during normal business hours. Because of the limited number of tickets received from the NCAA, no tickets will be available for sale to the general public.
