Free Alabama Student Tickets

Kent Gidley

The University of Alabama announced today the first 500 students in attendance for Tuesday night’s National Invitation Tournament first round men’s basketball game vs. Richmond will receive free admission.

Students are asked to come in through the West Entrance of Coleman Coliseum (regular season student entrance) and must have a valid Action Card. Similar to a normal home contest, students will have their Action Card swiped to gain entrance to the contest. All student tickets will be general admission.

The University of Alabama men’s basketball team earned a No. 3 seed in the 2017 National Invitation Tournament and will host the No. 6 seed Richmond  in Coleman Coliseum on Tuesday, March 14. The Tide and the Spiders will tip off at 8:15 p.m. on 953 The Bear & ESPN2.

“We are excited about participating in the NIT for a second year in a row,” head coach Avery Johnson said. “We felt we had a fantastic finish at the SEC Tournament overall in terms of winning games over Mississippi State and South Carolina. We came up a little short of beating a Kentucky team that was a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament. We think we had a nice end to the year. We played with energy and improved in a lot of areas offensively. We are excited for our seniors to continue playing and happy that our younger guys will get more games in postseason play.”
