Lincoln - With a near sellout crowd expected for Nebraska's basketball game against Creighton on Thursday night, the following information has been created to help fans around the Devaney Center. All ticket windows and gates open at 5:30 p.m. and fans are encouraged to arrive early to avoid traffic delays around the Devaney Center.
"The most important thing is we want to encourage fans to arrive early so they are in their seats for tipoff," Nebraska Executive Associate AD Marc Boehm said. "There is a lot of excitement for this matchup and we want to make sure that fans plan accordingly."
Tickets: Less than 1,000 tickets remain for Thursday's game and can be purchased for $20 at Huskers.com or by calling the Nebraska Ticket Office at 800-8-BIGRED. Tickets will also be sold, if any remain, at the Devaney Center Ticket windows beginning at 5:30 p.m.
Parking: Fans who have bought single-game tickets are STRONGLY encouraged to enter the parking lots coming along Salt Creek Roadway to avoid excessive waiting.
From the North, enter from North Fair Park Drive (29th and Cornhusker) and stay on that road to the public cashier entrance.
From the South, the best way to enter the public lots is to stay on Salt Creek Roadway to the public cashiers after 14th Street (as the Military Drive entrance is primarily for donor/season ticket parking).
