Fresno State will honor coaching legend Jerry Tarkanian before the Bulldogs' game March 1 against San Diego State -- and fans can redeem up to four free tickets for the game while supplies last.

The ticket voucher can be printed online at and must be returned to the Save Mart Center box office in person for access to the tickets.

Fresno State will retire Tarkanian's jersey, while also hosting an alumni game and ceremony for the team's two seniors: Tyler Johnson and Allen Huddleston.

The first 3,000 fans will get a special limited edition Tark Towel with 1,000 more given away throughout the game.

Tarkanian, who was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in September, played at Fresno State from 1954-55 and coached for the Bulldogs from 1995-2002.
