We have done this before with Jeff Green when he played for the Thunder, and it was an unforgettable experience as we got pictures with him before the game!

We have reserved a special bloc of seats for the game, which will be only available until Monday, October 14 (less than 2 weeks away!). You can buy via this special link until that time, so please don't delay and join our group of Bay Area Hoyas for this memorable experience!
