Santa Clara, Calif. - The Santa Clara University Ruff Riders, the largest student organization on campus boasting nearly 1,400 members, has officially launched ticket sales for its annual West Coast Conference Basketball Tournament Road Trip.
This year's WCC Basketball Tournament is scheduled for Thursday, March 6 through Monday, March 10 at the Jenny Craig Pavilion in San Diego, Calif. This year's trip will mark the third consecutive year that the Ruff Riders will travel to the University of San Diego campus seeking a pair of WCC titles.
Despite two tough losses by both the men and women last year, the trip proved to be a success. This year, the Broncos hope to redeem themselves with stellar performances. But, the only way that they can do this is with the support of their Ruff Riders. So hop on board the bus and cause some "Disorder at the Border."

Plans call for the Ruff Rider WCC Tournament bus to depart Santa Clara University on Friday, March 7 at 9 a.m. and head south for the border. Following a full weekend of Bronco basketball, the bus will return to Santa Clara following the men's final on Monday, March 10th.
Tickets are on sale from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., Monday-Friday at the Ruff Rider table in the Benson Memorial Center. All Ruff Riders are encouraged to buy their tickets early as space is limited and only open to club members. Ticket sales will cease once all seats are sold out.

$75 - includes round-trip bus fare, three (3) nights hotel accommodations at the Holiday Inn Mission Bay (official Ruff Rider hotel in 2001 & 2002) and WCC game tickets.
