In an effort to bring some reasonable sanity to our budget and to continue our desire to be as hospitable as possible, we find it necessary to institute the following pregame-meal policy for the remainder of the men’s and women’s basketball seasons. Meal service for media was instituted to serve meals to media and staff in situations where it would be difficult time-wise to eat somewhere else and still make it to Comcast Center in order to cover our games, for example 7 p.m. evening weeknight games. However, when game times adequately allow for staff and media to eat prior to arriving at Comcast, it is not necessary, or a prudent use of state funds, to provide full meal service. \
Therefore, during all weekend games and weeknight games starting at 9 p.m., there will be no pregame meal served at Comcast Center , as the timing of these games allows media and staff to eat prior to arriving at the Comcast Center. Rest assured that the halftime snack service will be available for all remaining games.
