Long Island Blackbirds Basketball tickets

Long Island Blackbirds Basketball tickets

The Schedule in 2013-14

The Long Island Blackbirds are ready to fly high in 2013-14 as they look to take their conference by storm. The Blackbirds are ready to take on some of the toughest teams in the Northeast Conference at home this season, and fans will surely pack into the stands at the Wellness Athletic and Recreation Center at Long Island University to see all the action in person. Seeing a top team come into this venue and compete with the Blackbirds is what LIU fans long for, and you can join the most loyal of fans in the stadium for all the biggest games this season. In the arena is the only place to be for the toughest matchups of the year.

The Blackbirds are going to have to bring everything they've got when the Wagner Seahawks fly into town on January 30th. The Seahawks bring a talented roster of players that know how to play as a team, so there will be few weaknesses for the Blackbirds to exploit. The Blackbirds are willing to do whatever it takes to earn a victory in a game as big as this one, though, so fans in attendance will be thrilled to see the level of effort from Long Island in this contest.

The Blackbirds will wrap up their home games on March 1st with a much-anticipated matchup with the Bryant Bulldogs. The Bulldogs edged out the Blackbirds for third place in the conference last season, and LIU is looking for revenge. A win in this game would be a great way to close out the season at the Wellness Athletic and Recreation Center at Long Island University, and there will definitely be a great turnout for this game. Be there to see the Blackbirds try to outdo the Bulldogs in what should be a phenomenal display of why going to a college basketball game simply can't be beat.


The Team

The Long Island Blackbirds are a Division I basketball program that play in the Northeast Conference. The Northeast Conference may not be a league that is well-known on a national scale, but those that follow the teams in the Northeast know that it's filled with quality competitors and some truly talented student athletes. The competition in this conference is always entertaining for the fans lucky enough to catch a game in person, and there are some great rivalries to see unfold throughout the season. The Blackbirds had a fine 2012-13 season in which they were able to finish fourth in the Northeast Conference standings with a 20-14 overall record and a 21-6 mark in conference play.

Anyone who's been to a Long Island Blackbirds basketball home game at the Wellness Athletic and Recreation Center at Long Island University knows there's no better place to see amazing college hoops live and in person. As one of the finest teams in college basketball, the Blackbirds know how to put on an incredible show every time they take the court, and the fans couldn't be happier as a result. Students, alumni and basketball fanatics all come out to show their support and rally this team to victory every time they take to the hardwood.


The Experience

There nothing better than seeing a sporting event live and in person. Sports have been a part of cultures around the world for a very long time, and spectators have always enjoyed watching athletes compete at the highest of levels. When you're there in the stands at a sporting event like this one, you're treated to seeing some of the most talented athletes in the entire world going head to head with everything on the line. There's nothing that compares to the atmosphere at a game, where you're surrounded by fans that are all there to enjoy a great spectacle of sport.

College basketball is one of the most popular sports in the United States, and for good reason. College hoops fans are some of the most passionate sports fans you'll find, and there certainly is something special about the sport that brings out that passion. One of the most watched sporting events in the world is March Madness, which occurs at the end of every college basketball season. Madness is a good way to describe that spectacle, and fans of college basketball are simply mad about the sport.

If you've ever been to a game featuring this team then you know how incredible the atmosphere at the game can truly be. Wouldn't you like to see your favorite player steal the ball and go the other way for a thunderous dunk? If course you would. You can when you head out to the arena for a big game this season. Make sure to be there for all the riveting basketball action this season.
