The first regular season women’s basketball game between Mount St. Joseph University and Hiram College will be held Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 2 p.m. at the Cintas Center on Xavier University’s campus. The NCAA granted an exemption to play the game earlier than originally scheduled to accommodate the wish of a terminally ill freshman basketball player for the Mount, Lauren Hill, to be able to play in a college game.
Because of the public’s overwhelming demand for tickets, Mount St. Joseph University administrators, in consultation with Lauren and her family, decided to hold the game at an alternate venue to accommodate a larger crowd. Xavier University officials offered the use of the Cintas Center.
Tickets for the game will be available starting Wednesday, October 22 at 9 a.m. and will cost $5 each with net ticket proceeds donated to The Cure Starts Now Foundation. Tickets will be available at GOXAVIER.com or Ticketmaster.com, over the phone at (513) 745-3000 or in person at the Xavier Athletics Tickets Office.
