Six Wachovia tickets now on sale

Villanova fans can now purchase tickets to six home games at the Wachovia Center this season.

Tickets for the game against LSU in Big East/SEC Invitational on Dec. 6 are available from Comcast Tix.

Prices range from $25-$60, depending on seating, and Comcast Tix is still charging a ridiculous set of fees for even the $25 purchase: A minimum of $12.90 for the cheapest seats, including $6.90 in unspecified "fee(s)," an equally preposterous $3.50 "order charge" on top of that, and most ludicrous of all, a $2.50 charge for you to print the tickets out on your own printer. Unfortunately, this seems to be the only ticket option for this game.

The extremely popular "Wach-Pack" of five game tickets is also back for 2007-2008. Fans can purchase seats at the following games for as low as $100 for the pack:

Tuesday, November 6, 2007 @ 7:00pm vs BLOOMSBURG
Saturday, January 26, 2008 @ 12:00PM vs NOTRE DAME
Saturday, February 2, 2008 @ 12:00PM vs SYRACUSE
Saturday, February 23, 2008 @ 12:00PM vs CONNECTICUT
Monday, February 25, 2008 @ 7:00PM vs MARQUETTE

The Bloomsburg game is an exhibition, and tips off less than three weeks from today.

Fans can buy the tickets by visiting the Comcast Tix pre-sales page and entering in the pre-sale code: wildcats.

Alternately, the Wach-Pack is available from the regular Comcast Tix site, starting October 19. Either way, the Comcast Tix fees total $26.00 for the cheapest option, or more than the price of any individual game in the package.

Despite the outrageous fees, the Wachovia games are the best chance for a Wildcats fan sans Pavilion season-tickets to see the team play this year.

With the 'Cats expected to contend for the NCAA Tournament with an exciting corps of young guards, the tickets may be a bargain after all.

I always hated the games at the Spectrum as a student - Trolley into the city, student section split between baskets, noise level waaaay down from the Pavilion.

I'm sure there's a money reason for the games there, but the above factors just suck the life out of home court advantage. I'd rather they stay at the Pavilion - or better play one game a year (Senior Night?) at the Jake - Students and TV cameras only.

I'd have to disagree with this comment.

While the Wachovia games at the beginning of this decade were indeed lifeless, the place now routinely rocks with the resurgence of the program.
