(March 11, 2011)--Roadrunners fans -- your UTSA men's basketball team will face regular season champion McNeese State at 3 p.m. in Saturday's Southland Conference Tournament Championship game at the Merrell Center in Katy. A victory would give Brooks Thompson's program its first invitation to the NCAA Tournament in seven years.

The athletics department is sponsoring buses that will take UTSA students, fans, donors and alumni to the title game. The cost is $50 per person for the general public and $25 per person for UTSA students; this includes the ride and a game ticket. The bus will depart at 9 a.m., Saturday, March 12 in front of the Convocation Center at the UTSA Main Campus and will stop before and after the game for lunch and dinner; meals will be the responsibility of each individual.

>> To reserve a seat on the bus, contact Shelly Horn at shelly.horn@utsa.edu or 210-458-6333 by 3 p.m., Friday, March 11. Cash and personal check payments will be accepted at the bus on Saturday morning.

Those planning to drive to the championship game on their own can purchase tickets at the UTSA window at the Merrell Center. Those unable to attend can watch the nationally televised contest on ESPN2.

UTSA defeated the Cowboys, 65-61, on Feb. 16 at the Convocation Center.
