Cheer on your favorite college teams with Ball State Basketball tickets. The Ball State Cardinals men's basketball team is the athletic program of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. The Cardinals' first basketball season was in 1920–21 and now plays in the Mid-American Conference. The team hasn't played in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament since 2000. The Cardinals have experienced varying degrees of success throughout their 94-year history. Despite the fact that there was little success in the early years of the program until the 1970s, things would soon change. Ball State became a sporadic leader in the Mid-American Conference, winning a record seven MAC tournaments between 1981 and 2000. In the 2001 Maui Invitational Tournament, the Cardinals accomplished an amazing feat when they upset #4 Kansas and #3 UCLA on consecutive days.

Women’s Final Four and Championship tickets usually start around $114 while prices can rise as high as $1200.
