      I already have my season tix so no need for will call but I think the best remedy is just to win. Unfortunately basketball starts at the peak of football season and during finals / christmas break.

      Where do you sit Henry? I’ll come by and say hello.

              From the few videos I have seen of Jordan and from the statements made by CAE about him recently, I execpt the "Energizer Bunny" to be a fan favorite and bring in more fans.
              He would have been a perfect fit in Nolan Richardson's "40 minutes of Hell" system he ran at Arkansas. Can't wait to get out to Galen!

                We're on the same page Mr. Usher!!
                First off,
                Promotions!! Promotions!! Promotions!!
                We can get the students super involved by offering free pizza or burgers or burritos if this team scores over 100 points!! Or if they get 10 dunks and/or 10 steals (just throwing some ideas out there). The athletic and marketing dept must take the lead on this!! This is the year to do this!! We have one of the best teams in the country.
                Second, high school teams near campus and further out must be given a chance to see this exciting team for an awesome group discount price. I'm talking upper level seats. Just show your school ID.
                USC is on the rise, everyone is talking SCBB.
                Obviously for some of the marquee games tix will be in demand. But the other games are perfect for major promotions.
                Also we have a great DJ. Let's continue to use him and music to get fans and students super involved.

                Fight On!!!

                  I concur. The athletic department needs to promote the heck out of this team and future USC basketball. USC basketball is on it's way too being a national power and the athletic department needs to get behind basketball as much as football.

                    More exposure will definitely help. It's time the Athletic Dept. promotes basketball as much as football.

                    I'm going to try and make as many games as I can. Can't wait for the season to start on Friday!! I haven't been this hyped for a season since Granville, Clancy, Scalabrine, Bluthenthal, and Trepagnier. Beat the Titans!

                      I have been following USC B-ball for a long time, since I was a freshman living off campus at the Hoover House across the street from the old 32nd Street Market.....probably the last time USC was ranked #1 in basketball (Westphal / Riley / Layton - '70-'71 team). I can tell you that the way the arena will be filled is when the team is winning big-time again. (Like it was for the Westphal / Riley team, the Gus Williams / Lambert team, the Harold Miner team, the Clancy / Scalabrine team, the Mayo / Gibson team.) My prediction is that momentum will build during the pre-conference games and by the time we are in conference, the Galen will be rocking.

                        Hello Mr. Usher, I've been waiting for a loaded team like this one to come along for a while. Enfield and company have done a fine job rebuilding the program. As for getting more fans to Galen, I really think it starts with the student body. When designing Galen, they really should have put the student section in view of the camera like Duke and Grand Canyon do - instead all viewers see is sleepy alumni and going to games doesn't look that fun. I think the marketing department tried to rebrand the USC basketball student section, but they came up with lame names. Would you rather be a Cameron Crazy, a GCU Havoc or be in Kingdom of Troy. So, the best way to me would be to move the student section in front of the camera, enlist some hardcore student fans to build and lead an elite group of 50+ basketball fanatics who are guaranteed seats on camera every home game. Work with the DJ to build a fun atmosphere that turns Galen into the night's social event. Once the students consider home games can't miss like football, the alumni will want to show up too. As for what the players like your son could do, if they give love and access to the most hardcore student basketball fanatics (take pics after games, etc.) these students will want to keep showing up. Winning helps too, but the games need to become more of a social affair and right now the home game against UCLA is the only guarantee in that department. Fight On and looking forward to a great year from the team.
