Early sellout expected

The $80 tickets for the 1998 men's NCAA Southeast Regional semifinal and championship games at Tropicana Field likely will be sold out by Wednesday, athletic director Paul Griffin of host South Florida said Monday.

"Judging by what occurred last time (the 1994 Southeast Subregional, which attracted three-session crowds of 24,199, 24,729 and 26,102), things this time went fairly quickly fairly well," Griffin said.

When the 25,328 lower-level and club seats for 1998's March 20 and 22 sessions (three games) are gone, only some of the 15,621 upper-level seats ($60) will remain.
