Season tickets for the 2012-13 Butler Basketball season are now on sale featuring 18 games at historic Hinkle Fieldhouse. The campaign includes the Bulldogs’ inaugural campaign in the powerful Atlantic 10 Conference and anticipated non-conference matchups.
The Athletic Department adjusted the seating and pricing options to give more options to fans. This season seven different price options will be offered – starting at just $225 – or less than $13 per game. Lower level chairback seats will sell for $589 ($32.72 per game). When looking at all seats available this season, the average price is less expensive than last year.
Head coach Brad Stevens’ 12 returning letterwinners gained invaluable experience last season, which resulted in a seventh straight season with at least 20 wins. Senior Andrew Smith and juniors Khyle Marshall and Chrishawn Hopkins were the Bulldogs’ top three scorers last year. The team will welcome three freshmen to the roster and the eligibility of All-SEC transfter from Arkansas, Rotnei Clarke.
Included in the home schedule are Atlantic 10 Conference games with four teams that advanced to the NCAA Tournament last year (Xavier, Saint Louis, Temple and Saint Bonaventure). Richmond and Charlotte will also travel to Hinkle, and have combined for seven NCAA appearances since 2000. Duquesne and Rhode Island round out Butler’s home A-10 contests and will visit Hinkle with first-year head coaches.
The non-conference slate is highlighted by a January weekend game with Gonzaga and also includes three in-state foes in Ball State, Evansville and IUPUI. The Bulldogs will open the regular season on Saturday, November 10 against Elon after playing a pair of Indiana teams in the exhibition season (DePauw and University of Indianapolis). The entire home and road schedule will be officially released near the beginning of the fall semester.
