Default Arch Madness update 2/15/18

Ticket info-

Standings-


Bradley's MVC Tournament possibilities-
It is looking most probable that Bradley will play in either the #4 vs. #5 game or the #3 vs. #6 game, and a much lower possibility they could end up as high as the #2 seed or as low as the #7, or #8 seed.
If they play in the #4 vs. #5 game, that will be at 2:30 PM, the second game of the afternoon session (Session 2) on Friday, March 2.
If they play in the #3 vs. #6 game, that will be at 8:30 PM, the second game of the night session (Session 3) on Friday, March 2.

The Missouri Valley has anounced that All-Session ticket sales for the 2018 Arch Madness MVC Tournament purchased through the 10 member schools are down 31% from last year. That figure is pretty much what was expected by many, since Wichita State accounted for 35% of all of the All-Session tickets sold through the schools last year, and they have left the MVC.

Another likely factor is the fact that no schools seem to be runaway favorites to make it to the tournament final this year, so people buying tickets from the MVC schools are probably a bit more hesitant to purchase All-Session passes and there will probably be more individual-session tickets sold instead.
Plus, another factor this year- the SEC Conference Tournament is the following weekend at the Scottrade Center, and that means that Missouri will be playing. This will significantly hurt the walkup sales to local basketball fans, IMO.
And yet another factor affecting ticket sales is a recent increase in price for the tickets.

Here are the numbers of All-Session tickets that each school has reported that they sold this year. Note that Bradley has sold the 3rd highest number of tickets. Each school is required to purchase 225, but can obtain more if needed.
Last year's numbers are in parentheses
Illinois State: 475 (580)
UNI: 300 (320)
Bradley: 275 (225)
Southern Illinois: 250 (358.)
Drake: 225 (225)
Evansville: 225 (225)
Indiana State: 225 (225)
Loyola: 225 (225)
Missouri State: 225 (225)
Valparaiso: 225 (0)
Total: 2,650
2017 total: 3,847 - Wichita State sold 1,354

Again, the numbers above include only the All Session tickets sold by each school's Athletic Department. It does not include individual session tickets, and does not include tickets sold on Ticketmaster or at the Scottrade Center box office, and does not include student tickets.
I know quite a few Bradley people who are planning on going to St. Louis, but are waiting to see which session Bradley will play in. I suspect that is true for a lot of fans of all 10 teams. I think we will see a much higher percentage of people attending the games who buy Single-Session tickets, rather than the All-Session passes.

Fans at the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament will notice changes in the Scottrade Center. In addition to some renovations in the arena, there is a new video scoreboard.
Below is a comparison of 2 actual photographs from high above the hockey ice surface with the old scoreboard and with the new one-

And here is more about the recent renovations that have been done since the last time Bradley played in the Scottrade Center. New theater seating sections were added at one, mainly for the St, Louis Blues hockey fans in mind, which have food and drinks served, bathrooms were renovated, and there are other renovations around the concourse including several new concesion stands. A couple new changes won't be visible.. a new ice surface was installed for the hockey team, and the locker rooms were updated.
