NORMAN, Okla. - It's not too late to get tickets to see the Oklahoma men's basketball team this season. Although season ticket sales have ended, there are still fan-friendly, affordably priced ticket packages available through the OU Athletics Ticket Office at (405-325-2424 or 800-456-4668) or online here at www.soonersports.com. Get your tickets today to see the eighth-ranked Sooners as they compete for a third straight Big 12 Championship and a return trip to the NCAA Final Four.

A pair of half-season ticket packages are now available and include seven home games in each (four conference and three non-conference) for just $99. Many of the opponents visiting the Lloyd Noble Center participated in NCAA Tournament play last season and are again nationally ranked this year. Games included in half-season package No. 1 include Prairie View A&M this weekend, as well as Coppin State, UNC Asheville, Colorado, Baylor, No.2-ranked Kansas and No. 3-ranked Texas. Games included in half-season package No. 2 include Hartford, Georgia State, No. 12 Connecticut, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State and Nebraska.

Fans interested in attending individual home games this season have several packages to choose from as well. Beginning with this weekend's game versus Prairie View A&M and continuing for all home games during the month of December, Holiday Family Packs can be purchased for $10. Each Holiday Family Pack includes a game ticket, a coupon for a free hot dog and small soda, and a coupon redeemable for a free OU t-shirt. A minimum purchase of four packages is required and all orders must be made at least one day in advance of the game. Holiday Family Packs make great gift ideas.

A limited number of individual game tickets are currently available for most non-conference games. Ticket prices for these games range from $15 to $20. Group tickets are also available for select home games and are priced at $10 for non-conference games. Groups must consist of a minimum of 10 people and arrangements should be made in advance through the OU Athletics Ticket Office (orders of 100 tickets or more are eligible for an additional group discount.) Tickets must be paid in full at the time the order is placed. Availability may be limited for some games.
