In addition, elementary and middle school students who read at least 300 minutes during winter break can receive a complimentary ticket to the UNCG men’s basketball game on Jan. 28 against Furman. Family members of qualifying students can purchase discounted tickets for $5 to the game. All tickets must be secured through the UNCG ticket office by Thursday, Jan. 26. Information about how to secure these tickets will be included on the certificate, which will be given to the students who qualify.
