April 2, 2014 Update: The UTEP vs. South Dakota St. WNIT final four game for tonight has sold out after just over a day of being on sale.

It is the first UTEP women's basketball game to ever sell out the Don Haskins Center.
April 1, 2014 Story: More than 10,000 tickets have been sold as of 6 p.m. Tuesday for UTEP's WNIT Final Four game Wednesday at the Don Haskins Center.
That's less than 2,000 away from a sellout.
UTEP (28-7) will host South Dakota State (26-9) at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Tickets are now on sale at the University Ticket Center with the following prices: $15 floor, $10 general admission and $5 for students. Tickets are more expensive for this round compared to previous rounds.
The ticket center will open at 8 a.m. Wednesday but tickets also are available at other Ticketmaster locations, as well.
Tickets also can be bought online through Ticketmaster.com but additional fees apply. You won't have to wait in line, though.
Dozens of people lined up outside the UTEP Ticket Center after Monday's win over Washington to buy tickets to Wednesday's game but the ticket center was closed.
UTEP Athletic Director Bob Stull told ABC-7 that the reason reason why the ticket price went up is because it's mandated by the WNIT and that's also why UTEP didn't open the ticket office immediately after the game Monday night.
Stull said they needed time to process the new $10 tickets so they would print correctly. However, if the Miners win on Wednesday the ticket center will be open immediately afterward to sell championship tickets.
Call the UTEP ticket center for complete information at (915) 747-5234.
