SDSU, USD game at Petco moved to Dec. 6

Event is part of weeklong Bill Walton Basketball Festival

The San Diego State University vs. University of San Diego men's basketball game at Petco Park has been moved to Dec. 6 at 2 p.m. PT.

The date of the game, originally Dec. 5, was switched to avoid conflict with the Mountain West Conference football championship game, which San Diego State hosts that day at Qualcomm Stadium.

Tickets already purchased for the game will be valid, but no refunds will be issued for the annual matchup. Tickets are still available and can be purchased by visiting www.padres.com/bball.

The game will be the first men's basketball game at Petco Park and is part of the weeklong Bill Walton Basketball Festival, which tips off Monday morning on an outdoor basketball court that has been built on Petco Park's infield.
