As of 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, general admission tickets to Syracuse menâ??s basketball games officially went on sale.
Fans who were looking for tickets to the game versus Duke were officially out of luck; unless they wanted to pay a premium online. The Carrier Dome box office had signs hanging in the window, alerting fans of the sellout as students and community members lined up in front of the Dome box office.
You can still get tickets to the Duke game online, with prices on ticket resale websites ranging from $72 to $4,650 - all for upper-level seats.
CNY Central spoke to some eager fans in the ticket line, who said that the Duke game was all about the atmosphere, and with coaching legends Jim Boeheim and Mike Krzyzewski facing off in the Dome, itâ??s sure to be an event.
As consolation for those who wanted Duke tickets, fans were buying up seats at the December 3 matchup with Indiana, or the January 11 game against North Carolina, both at the Dome.
