The Illinois State Athletics Department is offering $5 tickets to the Redbird men’s basketball game Sunday, Dec. 22 at 3:35 p.m., when ISU takes on historic in-state rival DePaul on Rock the Arena Night with Brushville.

For the fourth-straight season, country music band Brushville, formerly known as Brushfire, will provide the in-game music and entertainment for Redbird Arena. The band’s latest single “Bar Star,” is now available for download on iTunes.

"We love performing at Redbird Arena," said Gillan. "Rock the Arena Night has become a tradition for Brushville. Our upbeat style and tempo fit right in with the fan base at Illinois State. We’re looking forward to the game against DePaul and being able to do our part to add some energy to the atmosphere, and most importantly, help the Redbirds get a VICTORY!"
