EUGENE, Ore. – For the first time ever, Oregon has been selected to take part in ESPN's College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon on Nov. 17-18. The annual event is a 24-hour marathon of continuous live basketball games broadcast on the ESPN family of networks.
The Ducks’ Tip-Off Marathon appearance will come in their opening game of the Legends Classic versus Detroit on Monday, Nov. 17 at Matthew Knight Arena. The game will be shown live on ESPNU at 8 p.m. Pacific time. Detroit returns four players who started at least 12 games last season for a team that went 13-19.
Oregon will also host a second Legends Classic game later the same week before heading to the Barclays Center along with Michigan, Villanova and Virginia Commonwealth for the Championship rounds Nov. 24-25.
Fans can get tickets for the Detroit game by purchasing 2014-15 season tickets online at http://www.goducks.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=500&ATCLID=205311430.
In addition to the Tip-Off Marathon game, the home slate includes games against Arizona, UCLA, Washington, Oregon State and Mississippi, among others, at Matthew Knight Arena.
Fans who go online at www.goducks.com/mbbtix to renew their tickets will automatically receive an appointment to select their seats later this month. At that time, fans will have the option to explore possible upgrades or different seat locations. The process uses an online 3D model of Matthew Knight Arena that is now available for preview.
Season ticket prices remain the same for the fifth consecutive season, with some season tickets starting as low as $150, a 50 percent discount off face value.
The deadline for season ticket renewals is Aug. 8.
Requests are also being accepted for new men's basketball season tickets. New ticket holders will be able to utilize the 3D Select-A-Seat technology when picking seats this September.
The Ducks are coming off an historic 24-10 season that saw them win games in back-to-back NCAA Tournaments for the first time in program history. Oregon’s 97 wins under head coach Dana Altman are the most in any four-year period in program history.
Senior guard Joseph Young returns to lead Oregon after averaging 18.9 points per game and shooting 41.5 percent from three-point range. He was an all-Pac-12 second team selection and a Pac-12 all-tournament honoree as a junior.
