It's back to the future on Saturday

San Jose State men's basketball welcomes Northern Colorado for a basketball game on Saturday.

That, in and of itself, is straightforward.

But what's going to be unusual is that the contest takes place at the San Jose Civic Auditorium, beginning at 3 p.m.

No, we won't be seeing Chris McNealy, Reggie Owens, Ward Farris, Wally Rank, Matt Fleming and the like romping around on the court and none of those basketball short 'shorts' will be on display either -- it will be the 2008-2009 Spartans 'christening' the past San Jose State homecourt.

We also recall our 'Gold Circle' seats quite well, accomodations that had us sitting three feet or so from the court. The referees were usually quite chatty, too.

Here are some further details on Saturday's game:

*** All seating will be General Admission and tickets are just $10 for adults and $5 for youth 12-and-under.

*** Season ticket holders already possess tickets but bringing family and friends is encouraged -- share your Spartan-Civic memories with them.

*** Tickets can be bought in any of the following ways:

-- in person at the Spartan Ticket Office at 1393 S. 7th Street
-- online at
-- by calling the Spartan Ticket Office at (408) 924-SJTX or (877) SJSUTIX during regular business hours of 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Monday-Friday
-- the day of the game via walk-up (cash only) starting at 1:00 PM at the Civic Auditorium Box Office.

*** Doors will open at 2:00 pm before the 3:00 pm tip-off.
