As the RIT men’s hockey team begins its journey toward the NCAA Frozen Four, members of the campus community are invited to showcase their Tiger pride—both in person and online.
The Tigers have enhanced their presence on Facebook, creating an online community designed to spread the word about the upcoming NCAA tournament. Everyone is encouraged to become a “fan” at www.facebook.com/RIThockey. Exchange comments with other Tiger fans and stay up to date on news and information related to the tournament.
At 3 p.m. this Friday, March 26, RIT will faceoff against the University of Denver in the first round of the tournament at the Times Union Center in Albany.
Discount alumni tickets are available online at http://www.rit.edu/alumni/albany. Alumni can purchase up to 6 tickets for $40 each, and admission to a tailgate party at the Times Union Center is available for an additional $5. Game tickets may also be purchased at the arena in Albany for $46.
