PULLMAN, Wash. - The Washington State University men's basketball game against Gonzaga, Tuesday, Dec. 5 at Friel Court is a sell out to the general public.

"We are thrilled to have this type of ticket sales leading up to the game," WSU Director of Athletics for External Operations Pete Isakson said. "It should be a tremendous experience for our student-athletes and fans and is part of what we expect to be a growing trend with Cougar basketball."
Isakson added, "With the success we have enjoyed so far this season, I encourage fans who want to purchase single-game tickets to do sooner rather than later."
"We appreciate the support of the Cougar fans," WSU Head Men's Basketball Tony Bennett said. "Hopefully, it will be a great college basketball atmosphere."
Fans who do not have a ticket to the game can view the television broadcast with Brian Davis and Craig Ehlo calling the action.
The game will be televised on KHQ Channel 6 in the Spokane market and as well as KHQ's Idaho territories. The rest of Washington, with the exception of a 60-mile radius of Seattle, as well as the remainder of Idaho, all or Alaska, Montana and Oregon can see the game on FSN Northwest.
