BayHawks Open Playoffs with Austin

The Erie BayHawks open their first round best-of-three games series in the 2012 NBA Development League playoffs at home on Thursday, April 12 at 7 pm versus the Austin Toros.

Game 2 will be played Sunday in Austin at 4 pm ET, and game 3, if necessary, is set for Monday at 8:30 pm ET also in Austin. Erie, the No. 5 seed, was chosen by Austin, the No. 3 seed, in a selection process that gives the league’s top three seeds an opportunity to select their first round opponent from the four lowest-seeded playoff teams.

Austin defeated Erie 111-88 in the teams’ only meeting of the season on January 10 when they played in Reno, NV at the league’s Showcase event.

Tickets for Thursday’s game are on sale now at the Tullio Arena box office or by calling 814-452-4857.
