NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Vanderbilt athletics officials announced on Tuesday that all tickets for Sunday's Tennessee women's basketball team have been allocated and no tickets will be available for sale day of the game.
"We have used this special game to promote women's basketball and our team to our faculty, university staff and the Nashville community," Vice Chancellor David Williams said. "The response was excellent. We want fans that might be accustomed to buying a ticket at our box office on game day to realize that tickets are no longer on sale and won't be Sunday. The game will be showcased on national television and we are looking forward to it."
In addition to season and single game ticket sales, Vanderbilt officials worked with a variety of campus, community and youth groups, the largest of which was the university's Employee Celebration department in promoting the game. The athletics department has annually promoted a successful football tailgate with the Employee Celebration office and this year the initiative was expanded for this marquee basketball game.
The game tips off at 5 p.m. Sunday and will be televised on ESPNU. Fans may also listen to the game on 560 AM in Nashville or by subscribing to All-Access on VUCommodores.com.
At halftime of Sunday's game, Vanderbilt will retire the jersey of all-time leading scorer Chantelle Anderson. The game is also a women's basketball reunion and former letterwinners will be recognized on the court.
