Ga. - Augusta State and Montevallo meet for the third time this season -- and for the second time in the last 10 days -- when the Jaguars and Falcons square off in Christenberry Fieldhouse Tuesday night in the NCAA Southeast Regional Championship game at 7:00 p.m.
Tickets go on sale at the Christenberry Fieldhouse box office one hour before tipoff at 6:00 p.m., Tuesday, and are also available for purchase online until 4:00 p.m., Tuesday afternoon. Tickets purchased online will be available at will call. There is no advanced sale of tickets planned for Tuesday prior to the 6:00 p.m., opening of the box office. Tickets may also be purchased on ASUís Walton Way campus in the JagCard office.
The ASU-Montevallo matchup marks the third consecutive season in which the regional title game has featured an all-Peach Belt Conference pairing. The Jags defeated Clayton State 89-72 in the 2008 regional championship and overwhelmed USC Aiken 85-57 last March in the title game.
The winner advances to the Elite Eight in Springfield, Mass., slated for March 24, 25 and 27.
ASU advanced to the regional final with victories over No. 8 seed Brevard (91-73) and No. 5 seed Anderson (100-70), while the Falcons have gotten past both second-seeded Mount Olive and No. 6 seed USC Aiken.
The Jags defeated Montevallo 61-40 on Feb. 13 in a nationally-televised on contest on CBS College Sports Network, while UM eliminated ASU from the Peach Belt Conference Tournament with an 81-77 win over the Jags on March 6 in the USC Aiken Convocation Center.
A live webcast and live stats are available online at www.aug.edu/athletics. John Patrick (play-by-play) and Robert Thurman (color) will call all the action as the Jags look to extend their home winning streak to a school-record 31 games.
