Fans of SCU basketball can get an exclusive “First Look” at the 2016–17 team on Aug. 12.

It’s never too early to start thinking about Santa Clara men’s basketball, which has begun a new era.

First-year head coach Herb Sendek is inviting Santa Clara fans to the Leavey Center on Friday, Aug. 12, from 5-8 p.m. for an exclusive “First Look” at the 2016-17 team.

Fans will not only get an early glimpse of the team during one of its summer practices preparing for an exhibition tour to Italy, but also receive information on the new season-ticket pricing model and benefits, view seat locations available for purchase, and tour the facility. Join us to see the one-of-a-kind, recently-installed court designed by NIKE, tour the newly remodeled locker room, and enjoy light food and drinks with fellow Bronco fans.

Following the practice, which ends at 6 p.m., hear remarks from Sendek and director of athletics Renee Baumgartner.

Our valued season-ticket holders will receive an information packet in the mail prior to the “First Look” event. This packet will include information on our new season ticket pricing model. Current season-ticket holders will have an exclusive opportunity to renew beginning Aug. 1 and ending Sept. 16.

If you have any questions about the “First Look” event, please contact the Santa Clara Athletics Ticket Office at (408) 554-4660 or Click here to register for the event.
