The Cinco Pack is a five-game ticket package that includes admission to the Gauchos' Nov. 21 match-up with 2008 NCAA Final Four participant and likely preseason No. 1 North Carolina, as well as tickets to four other home games of your choice. The Cinco Pack will be available for walk-up and telephone purchase at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 16, and for online purchase on Oct. 22.
