VCU’s Student Section may be well on it’s way to defending the Naismith Student Section of the Year title earned last season, as all 1500 Rowdy Rams memberships sold out in under 12 hours yesterday, doing so at $10 more than last season’s cost and in just half a day compared to last season’s memberships that took almost a week to completely sell out.
VCU reserves 2,000 student seats per men’s basketball game, leaving 500 per game on a first come first serve basis for the 2013-14 season.
The Rams have sold out 35 consecutive games, a streak that predates their historic Final 4 run in 2011. With a season ticket wait list and a team projected to start the season nationally ranked, VCU will most likely extend that streak throughout the entirety of this upcoming season, once again making the Siegel Center one of the best home court advantages in college basketball.
Shaka Smart and company will kick off the regular season on November 8th against the Redbirds of Illinois State. Details of a 2013 exhibition have not been released but the black and gold will likely take the court sometime during the prior week.
