High-Flying Rockets in Sweet 16!
Our UT Women’s basketball team cemented their place in the Sweet 16 round of the WNIT in emphatic fashion with a win last night over in-state rivals Cincinnati. I was proud of the great energy and fan participation as the Rockets rolled to a convincing 72-51 victory in front of the UT community at Savage Arena.
The win sets the stage for a Sweet 16 matchup with Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) this Thursday, March 22nd, at 7 pm.
As with the past two games, our strong attendance and positive atmosphere have earned us the right to host what should be a thrilling Sweet 16 showdown.
All UT students will again be able to attend the game for FREE courtesy of the UT President’s Office, but must have a valid Rocket ID.
UT employees have the opportunity to purchase up to two tickets at half price. All tickets for Thursday’s game are on sale now and can be purchased from until 5 pm Thursday or at the gate before the game. Tickets are $13 for reserved (lower level) seating or $11 for general admission (upper East level).
Hope to see you there!
BE BOLD, WEAR GOLD! GO Rockets!
