The offseason is beginning to dwindle down for the Illinois State men's basketball team, and fans now have a chance to prepare for this upcoming season's action.

ISU men's basketball tickets went on sale this past Monday. Lower bowl tickets are scarce, but upper bowl tickets are still available to be purchased for as low as $99.

Redbird Arena will have a new look this season, as Doug Collins court and the surrounding lower bowl will be completely revamped by the start of the new year. 

Red Alert, ISU's student section organization, has announced a new way to get a Red Alert pass as well. Students can either purchase a one-year pass for $50, or they can choose a four-year pass that costs only $100. The pass will get students into any home football or men's basketball game.

The Redbirds will travel to Italy for a foreign trip August 7-17 where they will practice, play three games and go on different sight-seeing tours. Dan Muller returns just two starters from a season ago, and only one other roster member received playing time last year.

Season tickets can be purchased by visiting or by calling the Redbird Arena ticket office at (309) 438-8000.
