By MANDY SPENCE
Students may be able to pick up
more tickets during next season's
basketball ticket distribution, Caro
lina Athletic Association president
Carol Geer said Tuesday.
CAA officials are also considering
distributing tickets for lower level
seats first, Geer said.
The CAA will not make a final
decision on the proposed changes
until basketball season has ended, she
"We're considering letting one
student go down with his and three
other students' IDs and pick up four
tickets," Geer said.
; CAA officials reduced the number
of tickets a student could pick up to
two because students were scalping
tickets, Geer said. But now student
tickets are a different size than tickets
for the general public, so scalping is
no longer a problem, she said.
CAA members are also considering
distributing tickets for lower level
seats first, and then giving out upper
level seats for all games, said Denny

"It's the most fair system," Geer
said. "Everyone has a chance to get
a lower level seat."

The CAA will probably conduct
another survey, since several students
have complained about the random
distribution, Geer said.
Freshman Andy Barker said he was
one of the first students in line for
tickets to the DukeUNC game, but
he received seats on row R in the
upper level. The process should not
be random, he said.
"They usually have tickets left
over," he said. "If the demand isnt
that bad, then people should be

The line was repaired by 5:30 a.m.,

Brown said that overall he saw no
problems with the ticket distribution
"Students don't realize that only
two games out of the season Duke
and State are problems," he said. ,
"For every other distribution, we get
rid of some of the tickets, but it's a
struggle to do that."
Tickets are usually still available on
