Syracuse Tickets To See Them Host Duke Are 251% Above Avg


For the first time in basketball history, Jim Boeheim and the Syracuse Orange host Mike Krzyzewski and the Duke Blue Devils. This is just the fifth time that these teams will meet, so you cannot miss this epic Saturday night showdown. You should get your Syracuse tickets for this very important game at the Carrier Dome.

Entering this contest with a 20-0 record, the Orange basketball team has matched the school’s best start ever. For just $36, you can get into the dome to see undefeated Syracuse trying to get the school’s first basketball victory over Duke since 1989. The average price to see this game is $177.82, which is down 32 percent from its earlier price.

While the average price for Syracuse basketball tickets is $50.68 and this game is 251 percent above that average, this is no ordinary game at the Carrier Dome. Just like in Durham, North Carolina, the Syracuse students are camping outside the stadium for this huge game. Jabari Parker, Rodney Hood and the Blue Devils are taking on C.J. Fair, Trevor Cooney and the Orange. For the visiting team, this game is 23% above the average price for Duke basketball tickets on the road this season.

Although the current Orange players have never faced Duke, Jim Boeheim has as both a coach and player. He has been involved in all four games against the Blue Devils, including the time he scored 15 points in their elite eight matchup in the 1966 NCAA Tournament. Unfortunately, Syracuse fell in that game, but that tournament was fondly remembered as the one that Don Haskins and Texas Western stole the show.

Almost a half century later, you could attend one of the biggest events of the year. Wear all the orange clothing that you own and paint your face to show your Syracuse pride. Everyone will be watching on national television as you cheer on the Orange to victory.
