The College of Staten Island Men’s Basketball team has advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Division III National Championship Tournament for the first time in school history, and will be taking to the road this weekend. You can be a part of the action. On Friday night, Mar. 9 at 5:30pm, CSI (26-4) will be facing the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (27-1) in a neutral-site game played at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA.
CSI is giving the first 50 fans a free roundtrip ride to the game via its fan bus accommodation. The bus will leave the front of the Sports and Recreation Center (Building 1R) at noon and is expected to return to campus around midnight. Those who ride on the bus can then purchase tickets to the event at the Franklin & Marshall Box Office (tickets will be guaranteed for those on the bus). Tickets are $7 for general admission and $4 for students and seniors.
If CSI wins on Friday, they will play again on Saturday, Mar. 10 at 7:00pm against the winner of Amherst College and Franklin & Marshall. Regardless of the matchup, the game will again take place at Franklin & Marshall College.
The fan bus on Friday is on a reservation-only basis. To make your reservation, you must call Kellie Carnevale at 718.982.3400. There is a limit of two reservations per person. No exceptions please.
