Game is a sellout, with fans set to compete in 1960s costume contests    

  

           JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Dec. 7, 2009) - The ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has announced that the special "Back the Brooks" men's basketball game set for Thursday night in Brooks Gym is a sellout. Tipoff against North Georgia is set for 7 p.m.

 

            "The response to our Back to Brooks game has been amazing," said ETSU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dave Mullins. "With nearly 2,000 season ticket holders and 600 student seats - and a good response from the general public - we are looking forward to a packed house as we turn back the clock Thursday night."

 

            While tickets to the general public are no longer available, there will be 600 seats open for ETSU students on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, a special pregame tailgate is planned for the first 300 students outside of Brooks Gym at 5:30 p.m., with hamburgers, hot dogs and Ci Ci's Pizza on the menu.

 

            With the ETSU men wearing special throwback uniforms from the 1968 season, there will be a costume contest for fans wishing to wear their best 1960s attire. A $100 Best Buy gift certificate will go to the winner.

 

            In addition, former ETSU standout Tom Chilton, who gave up his retired No. 42 jersey to All Atlantic Sun Conference pick Kevin Tiggs during the 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons, will have his number re-retired during halftime of Thursday's game.
