The MSU Athletic Department released ticket sales information for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament through a press release today. If you want to get your hands on some, you better have been awfully nice to the Spartan Fund or to other university efforts.

Spartan Fund donors that contribute more than $10,000 annually, or university donors that have contributed more than $250,000 in their lifetime will be able to submit a ticket request with payment prior to a Monday evening deadline of 5:00pm. Those confirmed will be charged for both first and second round games. There are only 450 tickets allotted to the school. Those who are eligible to place ticket requests will receive an e-mail confirmation after 8:00pm Monday night.

Meanwhile, the rest of the fan base will be scanning the online ticket brokers only to find a case of sticker shock...which, ironically, would be a discount for those eligible donors.
