ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Single-game tickets for the 2009-10 UCF men's basketball campaign are currently available for purchase. The Knights are slated to play 15 contests at the UCF Arena this season.

Tickets are available at all Ticketmaster outlets, on the web at UCFAthletics.com and Ticketmaster.com and over the phone at 800-745-3000. Tickets start at just $5.

The Knights will open the year on Nov. 13, hosting Massachusetts. UCF will play eight Conference USA games in Orlando, including matchups with UTEP (Jan. 23), Tulsa (Jan. 30), Houston (Feb. 16) and UAB (Feb. 24).

The season will mark the Knights' third campaign at the state-of-the-art UCF Arena. The team has won 25 games in two years at the facility.

Head coach Kirk Speraw's team returns several letterwinners from last season, including junior forward A.J. Tyler (Palm Harbor, Fla.) and sophomore guards A.J. Rompza (Chicago, Ill.) and Isaac Sosa (Guaynabo, Puerto Rico). Rompza was named to the 2008-09 C-USA All-Freshman Team.

UCF's freshman class of forward Keith Clanton (Orlando, Fla.), guards Nik Garcia (Chicago, Ill.), Marcus Jordan (Highland Park, Ill.) and R.J. Scott (Slidell, La.) is considered to be one of the strongest recruiting groups in school history.

Season tickets, which begin at just $79, are still available by calling (407) UCF-1000 or by visiting UCFAthletics.com. UCF Basketball Pregame Madness is set for this Sunday at 5 p.m., and will feature a select-a-seat event, an inter-squad scrimmage and an autograph session. The event at the UCF Arena is free.
