Syracuse Basketball Tickets: January Preview

Ever since Jim Boeheim took over the Men’s Basketball program at Syracuse 30 years ago he has guided them to be one of the most successful in the country as he has compiled 930 wins, 4 Final Fours and one National Championship. This season is no different as Coach Boeheim has led ‘Cuse all the way to #2 in the AP polls to and an undefeated start with their biggest win coming over #18 Baylor to capture the Maui Invitational. Syracuse basketball tickets have benefited from their great start and currently average $79 per seat, which is good for 14th in the nation. Syracuse has a few games left in 2013 before beginning the heart of their schedule in January.However throughout the whole month the Orange only have three games at the Carrier Dome, those games are:

  • 1/4 vs Miami – Avg $89; Get-in $32

Syracuse kicks off 2014 with a January 4th game against the Miami Hurricanes. The Orange should win this game handedly as Miami has lost most of the team that took them to the Sweet Sixteen last season. Orange faithful can find tickets as low as $32 while going for an average of $89.

  • 1/11 vs UNC – Avg $147; Get-in $27

By far Syracuse’s biggest game of the month takes place a week later when they host the #14 North Carolina Tar Heels. UNC may have lost three games this season but don’t let that trick you into thinking they’re not one of the best teams in America as they have also beaten #1 Michigan State, #3 Louisville and #11 Kentucky this season. As a result tickets are up 46% for this game over ‘Cuse’s home average of $79 for a current average of $147 with a very reasonable Get-in of $27 for a game this big.

The last game the Orange have at the Carrier Dome in January comes against the team that left the Big East with, the Pittsburgh Panthers. These one time rivals come together to continue this rivalry in the ACC wherein tickets are going for $101 on average with some as low as $34.
