UD tickets fetching high prices on secondary market

University of Dayton basketball tickets are going for top dollar on the secondary market following the team’s recent success.

All of the team’s home games are sold out, according to university officials.

That’s led to the recent increase in ticket prices for UD games on secondary sites like Ticketmaster, Stubhub, Seatgeek and Vividseats.

The team’s next game is home against Saint Louis University on Saturday. The cheapest tickets that could be found Monday are in the upper deck in newly refurbished UD Arena for more than $100. The seats regularily go for $60 to $70 a ticket

Patrons on Monday could find tickets for $70 for Tuesday’s game against Rhode Island, who the Flyers have not played this year.

For a comparison, tickets for the Michigan/Ohio State basketball game on Tuesday could be purchased on Stubhub for $13 on Monday. Upper level seats for the Kentucky/Mississippi State game on Tuesday were going for around $20 on Stubhub.

Tickets for Xavier’s game against Providence in Cincinnati on Saturday can be found for as low as $12.

Another perfect week moved the Dayton Flyers one spot higher in the Associated Press top-25 poll. They reached No. 6 on Monday after victories against Duquesne and Fordham.
