CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami is sponsoring a Doubleheader Deal ticket promotion for the men’s and women’s basketball games on Thursday, Dec. 30 at the BankUnited Center. For these games only, fans can purchase a discounted $5 ticket – good for admission to both games.

The Miami men’s team – who is a perfect 6-0 at the BankUnited Center this season – opens the evening versus Pepperdine at 6 p.m., immediately followed by the women’s basketball game versus Morgan State. 

The Hurricane women are currently a perfect 9-0 at home on the year and have won 13 straight home games dating back to last season – the fourth longest such streak in program history.

Between the games, the University of Miami will honor the No. 2 jersey of Hurricane great Tamara James (2002-06).  James, the No. 8 overall pick by the Washington Mystics in 2006, was a 2005 and 2006 First Team All-ACC selection. She finished her UM playing career as the school’s all-time leader in points (2,406), free throws made (520) and free throws attempted (664). She ranks among the top three all-time in nine different categories and is listed among the top five all-time in 13 different categories.

The Doubleheader Deal is available for purchase online by clicking here, or by calling 1-800-GO- CANES, at the Hurricane Ticket Office (8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.; closed Dec. 22-Dec. 27 and Dec. 30-Jan. 3) or on gameday at the BankUnited Center Box Office.
