SunTrust River City Rumble at Swisher Gymnasium Sold Out
The JU-UNF basketball doubleheader set for Jan. 18 has been sold out.

The first meeting on the hardwood in the SunTrust River City Rumble will be at Swisher Gymnasium, starting with the women’s game at 5 p.m., followed by the men’s game at 8 p.m.

Fans that don’t have tickets to the doubleheader will be able to catch the game on television as it is part of the Atlantic Sun Conference’s “Game of the Week” package on Comcast Sports Southeast. Swisher Gymnasium’s seating capacity is 1,398 and last hosted a JU-UNF game in 2005, with the Dolphins winning that game in front of a packed house.

“We are going to have a full house at Swisher for both games as we are sold out, which will make for great night of basketball,” said JU director of athletics Alan Verlander. “It’s unfortunate that we’re not able to play these games at the Arena, but with the events planned around campus, it will make for a tremendous atmosphere.”

The game is being played on campus while the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus is in town at the Arena. The doubleheader is also being broadcast live on CSS which has also taken up available seating in the facility.

Along with CSS coverage on television, both contests can be viewed through ASun.TV. The women’s game will also be audio streamed through 1010XL.com while the men’s game can be heard live on 1010XL.
