Aggies to honor Cavs tickets

Lawton_Press Release_The Cameron Aggie Athletic Department announced today that all 2008-2009 Lawton/Ft. Sill Cavalry season tickets will be honored at all remaining Cameron basketball games in the Aggie Gym. Current Cavs season ticket holders need only to present their season ticket or season ticket identification to gain free admission to Aggie Gym.

"We appreciate what the Cavs organization has brought to the community, and we have great basketball to offer to those Cavs fans that now have a void," Cameron Athletic Director Jim Jackson said. "We offer our basketball to satisfy your need and encourage fans to come out and support the Aggies."

The Continental Basketball Association (CBA) and its four teams, including the Cavs, announced this week that the remainder of the 2008-2009 season will be cancelled, citing the "leagues best interests." Plans are for the CBA and the Cavalry to resume operations for the 2009-2010 season.

"We know that there was a lot of momentum with the Cavalry and in their fan base," Jackson said. "Now that their season is over we want to honor all Cavs fans and invite them to come join us."

General admission tickets for Aggie home basketball games are just $6 a person, and senior citizens (65+) and high school students cost only $4. Additionally, all non-active military personnel receive admission for just $1 and all active military receive free admission. Cameron University faculty, staff, and students also receive free admission. Military and Cameron personnel discounts are good for the entire family.

"Aggie basketball is exciting, economical entertainment that is a great value for your dollar," Jackson said. "We play at a high level against very talented opponents, and have a number of impressive student-athletes who play hard and are dedicated in the classroom. We have good kids doing good things and we want fans to come out and support them."

All remaining home basketball dates at the Aggie Gym are women's basketball and men's basketball double-headers. The next home Aggie basketball games are this Saturday (February 4) where the women will host the Pioneers of Texas Woman's University at 2:00pm and the men host the Abilene Christian University Wildcats at 4:00pm.
