Anyone know if there is a GW section or sections for Friday? I'm talking directly to the Barclays group ticket office and they're saying for our group of 20+ they can put us in section 17. Wondering if that is where we want to be.

GW Sections are 23. & 123 per GWMBB site.

Thanks, Alum. 17 seems relatively close to 23. Will give us some presence throughout that quadrant.

At least 9 of us will be in 16, so you'll have company

GW represented well at Fordham. Looking for the same optics on Friday.

Tickets purchased. Our group will be 29 deep in Section 17. The guy on the phone at Barclays said he's been talking to GW people all day and it sounds like we'll be out in big numbers.

Got my (young alum) tickets through GW box office this morning, you could only buy two at a time. I started calling at 9:30am, and I could not get through for a good 10 minutes, and I called 10+ times. By the time I got through the guy who helped me said the phones were ringing off the hooks and he had already helped 5 customers.
I would expect a big GW crowd (hopefully bigger than last year). I know there are a lot of us coming up from DC.

Bought our group tickets through the Alum site. More expensive, but includes booz and probably better seats.

I worked directly through the Barclays group ticket office. Prices were good. And then like last year, the 40/40 pre-game reception is "open to all GW fans." No ticketing or anything for that.

I am both an alum and on staff at GW and word here is that already more than 700 tickets have been sold. Should be a great turnout of Colonials.

Buff and Blue '82 --- Can the section reserved for GW even hold that many people? Is GW getting an additional section? It would be great if GW ended up with multiple sections.
And I didn't go last year, but purchased through the GW ticket page this year. Do they just assign the tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis and just start filling up the rows from row 1 on back in the GW section? Does anyone know?

@Colonial NY -- I don't work in the athtetic department but my understanding is that we have 2 entire sections (23 and 123) which look pretty large on the Barclays Center map. I purchased the whole package and you get a bar code printout just like if you ordered tickets for the Smitty; you have to go to the window at Barclays to exchange that for a ticket. I'm not sure how seats are being assigned. I'll try to find out and let the board know if I learn anything.

i purchased mine early and was able to pick them up at the st. joes game. we purchased the package. seats are in row 10 section 23. i believe packages were given higher priority than single game seats and season ticket holders were given priority among packages.

There's a section on gwsports.com where it says you can get tickets for free for the A10 tourney by showing your GWorld, but it also said that there's limited availability for tickets and asked for my name, email, and which game I wanted to go to. I filled that all out but I never got an email or anything so how do I know if I'm good for those free tickets if I show my GWorld at the Barclays Center? Am I supposed to be expecting an email or do I just show up and show my GWorld? If anyone could possibly answer that, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

I filled out the form also, and still haven't received an email. I called the tix office yesterday and they said they would send out ticket and bus information by today.
However, I went last year and they handed out student tickets at the will call if you had a valid GWorld, so I think you'll be fine as long as you have your GWorld with you. I'm assuming they are doing that this year also, so you should be able to get your tickets when you're there.
See you in Brooklyn. Raise High.

Is there a bus?
Not usually, or ever to be honest, the way I would go to New York, but given the location of the tournament and our particular interests for travel, might be worth checking out.
Wonder if they would let alumni on it?
