TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Indiana State University Director of Athletics Ron Prettyman announced today (Dec. 30) that ISU alumni Chad (’96) and Natalie (’01) Overton, owners of Terre Haute’s SERVPRO franchise, have purchased all unsold tickets for the Sycamore men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader on January 10 against Illinois State and are donating these tickets to the Terre Haute community.

This year’s SERVPRO Fan Appreciation Day marks the second consecutive season that the Overtons have purchased all unsold tickets to a Sycamore basketball doubleheader and donated them to the community.

“We are appreciative of the support that Chad and Natalie Overton as well as SERVPRO have shown to our women's and men's basketball programs and to Sycamore Athletics,” Prettyman said. “The significant gesture of purchasing unsold seats at Hulman Center will provide a great opportunity for many community members to experience our Sycamore pride by attending the games. We are hopeful that the community will take advantage of this opportunity and support the Sycamores and SERVPRO.”

Tickets purchased by SERVPRO will be distributed at no charge to fans from the Hulman Center Ticket Office during normal office hours (Monday – Friday, 8:00 – 4:30 p.m.).

Fans who want a block of 20 or more tickets should call ticket office in advance to reserve their tickets at 812-237-3737.

“We wanted to show our thanks to the Terre Haute community for their support of SERVPRO,” the Overtons said. “This is our way of saying thank you as well, to both the men’s and women’s teams for their hard work throughout the season.”
