ECU Basketball Set For "Blackout" Wednesday

East Carolina University

A “Black Out” has been declared for Wednesday’s men’s basketball game against nationally-ranked Clemson inside Williams Arena at Minges Coliseum. The first 1,500 students to the game will receive a free “black out” t-shirt.

All ECU fans are encouraged to arrive early and wear black to the game. The basketball team will be wearing its black uniforms that evening.

The game, scheduled for a 7 p.m. tip-off, will provide another showcase opportunity for the “Minges Maniacs,” the ECU student section, to display their influence at Pirate home games.

Students can pick-up their tickets beginning Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 7 a.m. at Minges Coliseum.

Student Pirate Club members can pick up their tickets beginning Monday, Dec. 3, at 6 a.m. at Minges Coliseum as well. The first 500 Student Pirate Club members in line will receive a voucher for the ticket distribution, which will begin at 6:30 a.m.

ECU faces George Mason on Sunday as part of the BB&T Classic at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. before returning home to face Clemson. The Tigers will be the first ACC opponent to play in Greenville since former conference member South Carolina visited Minges Coliseum 1969.
