With expectations of a large crowd attending this Thursday's men's collegiate basketball game between Seattle University and the University of Washington, the doors to KeyArena will open at 5:30 p.m., 90 minutes before the start of the game on Dec. 13.

The decision to open the doors at KeyArena at 5:30 p.m. is a change from a normal Seattle U gameday, when doors open 60 minutes prior to the start of each game. Fans are encouraged to come as early as possible, especially if they are picking up tickets or plan on purchasing tickets on the night of the game.

The Seattle University Office of Alumni Relations invites all Redhawk fans to a pregame rally Thursday, Dec. 13, at Club Live within KeyArena starting at 5:30 p.m. There will be food and a cash bar at the rally as Club Live will be the place to be for Seattle U fans to gather and enjoy each other's company before the big game.

For tickets to Thursday's game against Washington, visit the men's basketball ticket page of GoSeattleU.com or Ticketmaster.com. Group tickets are also still available by contacting the Seattle U Athletics Ticket Office at (206) 398-GOSU (4678).
