WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Tickets ae selling fast for the face-off on Friday between the basketball teams of Archbishop Stepinac High School Crusaders and the Iona Prep Gaels.
Tickets for the tripleheader, to be held at Stepinac High School, 950 Mamaroneck Ave., go on sale Wednesday in anticipation of a sell-out.
The excitement gets underway at 4 p.m. when the freshmen teams square off, followed by a junior varsity game at 5:45 p.m.
But, the real fever-pitched moment for fans from both schools begins 7:30 p.m., when the varsity Crusaders and Gaels compete in a CHSAA game that will be broadcast live by News 12 Varsity.
Stepinac is in second place in the league standings (8-3) and Iona in fourth place (7-5).
Ticket prices are $5 for adults and $3 for students with a school ID and children under 12. Tickets will be available at both schools from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday and from 9 a.m. to noon Friday, or until the allotted number of tickets are sold out.
Each ticket is for all three games. However, fans are advised that there will be no re-entry if they leave the building during the tripleheader and that the “no ticket, no entrance” policy will be strictly enforced.
