Boston College announced that tickets for men's and women's basketball and hockey are now on sale. Here's the press release from BC: The Boston College Athletics Department today announced that winter sports ticket packages and individual game tickets to men'€™s and women'€™s basketball and ice hockey are on sale now. Fans can purchase tickets online at bceagles.com, by phone at 617-552-GoBC (4622) or by visiting Boston College'€™s ticket office located at Conte Forum. The men'€™s basketball team returns all but one player from last season'€™s 22-win NCAA Tournament team led by head coach Al Skinner, who has guided the Eagles to the tourney seven times in the past nine years. Fans have a variety of individual, multi-game and season ticket options to choose from as they cheer on the Eagles at the Heights. The $99 Five-Game Flex Pack provides Eagles fans admission to: one of two Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) marquee matchups against either national powerhouse Duke or defending National Champion North Carolina; two ACC games and two non-conference contests. The atmosphere at the Heights is sure to be intense as Mike Krzyzewski and the Blue Devils and Roy Williams and The Tar Heels look to avenge the Eagles'€™ headline-making victories over their two ACC rivals last season. BC'€™s upset over Duke was the team'€™s first win over the Blue Devils in 24 years. In addition, a limited number of individual men'€™s basketball tickets, including matchups against ACC foes Maryland, Miami, Clemson, Virginia Tech, and Florida State, as well as the SEC'€™s South Carolina, are now on sale. UMass and URI headline the Eagles'€™ local non-conference schedule which tips off when Dartmouth visits Conte Forum for the home opener on Friday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m. Tickets start as low as $10 in the Shaw'€™s family section. (Tickets to Duke and North Carolina are available only by purchasing Flex Packs or season tickets.) Season tickets in preferred seating locations are also available for as little as $250. Eagles'€™ women'€™s basketball head coach Sylvia Crawley and her squad will host some of the nation'€™s elite programs at Conte Forum this winter as they come off an impressive run to the Final Four of the Women'€™s NIT Tournament. The Eagles return all five starters from last year'€™s 23-win team. This year'€™s schedule includes matchups with 14 ACC teams including rivals Maryland, Duke and Georgia Tech as well as a visit from Big Ten power Michigan on December 10.  Three and seven-game ACC ticket packs are available starting at just $12.
