Missouri State Announces Ticket Special for Feb. 3 Lady Bears Game



Jan. 24, 2013

SPRINGFIELD -- Missouri State announced Thursday (Jan. 24) that it will sell $5 general admission tickets in JQH Arena’s upper bowl for the Lady Bears’ Feb. 3 game against Illinois State at 2:05 p.m.

MSU will retire a jersey for legendary women’s basketball coach Cheryl Burnett during a halftime ceremony of the Sunday afternoon contest against the Redbirds as part of a busy Hall of Fame Weekend schedule at the University.

In addition to Burnett’s honoring, Feb. 3 is also women’s basketball alumni day at Missouri State. A reception for all Lady Bears’ alumni will take place in the PRIME Overtime Club at JQH Arena after the game.

Also on Feb. 3, MSU will honor its women’s athletics pioneers prior to the game as part of its Title IX 40th Anniversary celebration. Female student-athletes from 1950-82 will be the focal point of the University’s Title IX 40th Anniversary celebration on that day. Each former female student-athlete will receive a commemorative gift for the occasion to recognize their contributions to the winning tradition of women’s athletics at MSU.

Feb. 1 and 2 will also include a number of activities, beginning with the recognition of Dr. Mary Jo Wynn at halftime of the Lady Bears and Bears games each day for her contributions and leadership in the construction of the Dr. Mary Jo Wynn Academic Achievement Center project.

The 2013 MSU Athletics Hall of Fame induction brunch is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 2 at 11 a.m. in the Plaster Student Union West Ballroom on the MSU campus. Inductees will be honored at halftime Feb. 1 and 2. The brunch is open to the public, and reservations may be made through Monday, Jan. 28, by calling Missouri State Athletics Development (417) 836-4143. Tickets are $25 per person.
