The University of Minnesota women's basketball team will open the 2012-13 season at Williams Arena on Saturday, Nov. 10, vs. Washington State as part of the Best Buy Classic, and fans can catch all of the season-opening action for free in a number of different ways.
Thanks to the Gophers' tournament sponsor, fans can pick up free tickets to the Best Buy Classic at local participating Best Buy stores from now until Nov. 11.
Fans can also get free admission to Saturday's game vs. Washington State by bringing in a non-perishable food item to donate to the Gopher Food Drive. Fans that may already have tickets are still welcome to bring in a donation for the food drive, and will receive a raffle ticket for some great prize drawings in exchange for their generosity.
Saturday is also Military Appreciation Day at the Barn, and members of the armed forces will gain free admission with a valid military ID.
