Last day to buy Zona Zoo for basketball lottery
Students must buy a Zona Zoo pass by 5 p.m. today to be entered into the menís basketball student lottery.
Initially, students were going to sign up for the lottery online, but because of technical difficulties everyone who bought a Zona Zoo pass this year has been entered into the lottery, said Amber Harryman, Associated Students of the University of Arizona spirit director.
Zona Zoo passes are $40 and can be purchased at the McKale Ticket Office.
Each lottery winner will be able to buy one full-season general admission season pass to the new student section in McKale Center for $72.
Lottery winners will be posted Sept. 27, according to the Arizona Athletics Web site.
