Charging for a game that doesn't count

If the JSU basketball team's early season winning ways have piqued your interest and you're planning to check out its next home basketball game, 4 p.m. Saturday against Reinhardt, be prepared to dig into your wallet.

JSU designated the game as an exhibition after the schedule was announced (because the Gamecocks have too many non-Division I games on their regular season schedule). But because the game is included in the regular ticket package, they're charging to see it -- at regular ticket prices. The Gamecocks' preseason exhibition with West Georgia was free.

The Gamecocks' next home game after Saturday is Dec. 30 against Berry. It's a game JSU will count, but Berry has designated as an exhibition.
