The RIT men’s hockey team is going to the NCAA Tournament for the third time as a Division I program and for the 16th time in program history after defeating top-seed Robert Morris, 7-4, in the Atlantic Hockey Championship on March 19. . RIT will play Quinnipiac University in Albany, N.Y. on March 26.

Fans on campus can buy tickets for the entire weekend (both semifinal games and championship) at the Gene Polisseni Center until 4 p.m. today. The RIT designated sections at the Times Union Center are 121 and 122. Single game passes are available through Ticketmaster and the Times Union Center but are not in the designated RIT sections.

Weekend passes through the Polisseni Center are $80 for adults and $40 for students (one per student ID). Only the weekend passes are available on campus. Single-day passes are available online and at the venue.

There will be limited bus space available for RIT students who would like transportation to and from Albany. The fan bus will leave RIT at 10 a.m. Saturday and return immediately following the conclusion of the first game on Saturday. Students must purchase a weekend pass to receive a bus pass.

In 2010, RIT’s Corner Crew and student fans were the talk of the college hockey world as their unbridled enthusiasm, innovate chants and passion for the university was noted on many media and fan sites, as the team made its memorable run to the Frozen Four. Let’s hope, with your support, to recreate that magic in 2016, starting in Albany this weekend.
