A new era of Ball State men’s basketball dawns this season, and fans can catch all the action in James Whitford’s first year as head coach by purchasing season tickets now.

The season promises to be an exciting one inside Worthen Arena with Whitford’s plan to bring a fast-paced brand of basketball to Muncie. A total of 15 home games dot the Cardinals’ schedule, released earlier this week.

Season tickets for the reserved seating section are available for $180, while general admission season tickets are available for $105. Fans cans purchase their season tickets in person at the Worthen Arena ticket office or by phone at 1-888-BSU-TICKET. Existing season ticket holders wishing to renew can do so in person, over the phone or through the online system.

“You’re going to see an up-tempo, aggressive, attacking style of play where we try to impose our will upon the opponents,” Whitford says. “We want to be able to create quick, good shots. It's a fun style of play, but we're not doing it because it's fun. We're going to do it because I think it puts us in the best position to win.”

Whitford takes over the Ball State program after successful assistant coaching stops at Miami University, Xavier and most recently Arizona. The former associate head coach for the Wildcats, Whitford has been a part of 13 postseason teams, including 10 that played in the NCAA tournament.

Whitford inherited a Ball State team that returns seven letterwinners, including five seniors. All-conference post player Majok Majok is back along with Jesse Berry, the team’s top returning scorer, and Chris Bond, one of the best defensive players in the Mid-American Conference.

The Cardinals have also welcomed a quartet of scholarship newcomers in freshmen Mark Alstork, Franko House, Quinten Payne and Zavier Turner.

In addition to the new look for the Cardinals on the floor, fans will also notice a change in the stands. Worthen Arena will feature a high-definition, LED video board for the first time, enhancing the gameday experience

Ball State will play six non-conference home games this season, including one exhibition, in addition to nine Mid-American Conference contests. In-state rivalry games against Butler (Nov. 23) and Valparaiso (Dec. 4) highlight the non-conference portion of the home schedule.

Order your season tickets today to secure your spot for the fun inside Worthen Arena.
