TUCSON--Ticket sales continue to rise for the Oct. 21 McDonald's Red-Blue basketball game, and with more than two weeks to go Arizona Athletics has sold more than 8,000 tickets to 14,545 seat McKale Center for the event.
Starting Friday (Oct. 5), McDonald's will provide a special ticket offer to customers at participating restaurants.

The 2011 UA men's basketball Red-Blue game sold out on Oct. 20, two days before the game. This year's ticket sales are ahead of last year's pace, so fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets soon.
Highlighting this year's game is a reunion of the 1987-88 men's basketball team. The 25th anniversary of its Final Four appearance, the first in the program's history, will be celebrated. Scheduled to appear from that team include head coach Lute Olson, Craig Bergman, Jud Buechler, Anthony Cook, Sean Elliott, Steve Kerr, Kenny Lofton, Harvey Mason, Craig McMillan, Matt Muehlebach, Sean Rooks, Tom Tolbert, Joe Turner and manager Eric Meyer.
The game will begin at 2 p.m. MST. Fans should be aware that Arizona volleyball hosts Oregon State at 11 a.m. Arena doors will open at 10 a.m. and any fans with a McDonald's Red-Blue game ticket can enter the building at that time and support Wildcat volleyball as well.
