What does an SU alumnus have to do to get NCAA tickets to Boston and/or New Orleans at face value?

While I'm not a season ticket holder, I do make an annual trek back to the Dome to see a hoops game. This year, I'll be at the Lousiville game on March 3rd.
I still keep in touch with my buddies from and SU and we are considering a trip to Boston to see the Sweet 16. (assuming that we are placed in the East bracket and win our first two games). A quick entry at the official NCAA website to buy tickets reveals not a single ticket is available via this website:
http://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball-men/div-one-bball-tickets-pre/2010-12-19/ticket-information
I was able to find out that face value all-session tickets were $195.
There is an additional link to buy at primesport.com, which apparently is the official NCAA ticket exchange site:
http://www.primesport.com/ncaaboston/about
A quick search at this site shows tickets range from $427 for 11th row in the upper deck to $2800 for 5 th row in the center lower level.

I would really enjoy sitting with the group that travels from SU. How does an alumnus get tickets from SU? In 2003, I didn't have the disposable income that I do now, but spending $1000 each for decent tickets on a website doesn't appeal to me.
Does anyone have any advice on how an alumnus gets tickets to Boston and/or New Orleans?
