    The upper bowl was sold-out because tickets were $2 for bench seats and $4 for chair seats during the holiday break.

    I respectfully but wholeheartedly disagree with the author of this letter. And I say this as an alumnus. Zoobies SHOULD be hidden. They are neither better seen nor heard. There is nothing more pathetic than poor college students. Why do you want to relive the agony of college (or what you call the glory days) by mingling with or looking at/hearing a bunch of hooligan college students? I am so grateful that I am no longer one of them, and when I go to a game or watch one on TV, I don't need to be reminded how grateful.

    Absolutely right! Irrefutable logic! Just look around the country for proof.

    Although I can understand your found remembrances of students front and center (ok just last season), this one game is a silly example to use. It was Thanksgiving Break. Students were out of town.

    The reason the students who attended were there was to cheer on Jabari Parker who was there on his recruiting visit.

    Having the students behind the visitors basket in the 2nd half will be an awesome home court advantage. The silly signs and pictures they waive during free throws and at crunch time are fun, and will be just fine.

    You are absolutely right.
