UC Riverside Highlanders Basketball Tickets
Dress up in your blue and gold garb and head on over to see an exciting game of hoops once you purchase UC Riverside Basketball tickets. The Highlanders are currently a member of the Big West Conference at play at the Division I level. However, as a Division II school for many years, the basketball team was highly successful. They made their first appearance in the NCAA Division II Tournament in 1970. Instantly, the team made its statement as a fierce competitor and progressed to the Final Four.
Throughout the rest of the decade, the Highlanders made several more NCAA Division II Tournament appearances. Perhaps one of their most successful years was 1995 when the basketball team managed to advance to the National Championship game of the NCAA Tournament. Unfortunately, they fell to Southern Indiana in a close match. Whether you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend on campus or love an exciting game of hoops, you won’t want to miss out on grabbing UC Riverside Basketball tickets.
The university’s basketball team plays its home games at the Student Recreation Center Arena in Riverside, CA, which has a capacity of 3,168. Several former highlanders have gone on to play in the professional leagues. Among others, Kyle Austin and Meno Dijkstra now participate in the Turkish TBL and Spanish LEB Gold leagues respectively. One of UC Riverside’s most competitive rivals is UC San Diego. Though the teams weren’t always fierce rivals, they began playing heatedly since UC San Diego entered the Big West Conference in 2020.
