A limited number of tickets remain for Kentucky’s game on Monday night against No. 8 at Baylor at Rupp Arena, UK officials report.
As of Thursday morning, there are 20,500 tickets out for the event, which will be a part of the ESPN Tipoff Classic marathon and will be shown live on ESPN2 at 7 p.m.
“What a great opportunity for our program to be showcased nationally with a sold-out Rupp Arena,” Kentucky Coach Matthew Mitchell said. “There’s going to be a lot of eyeballs on Rupp Arena that night, and if we can sell out Rupp and create a great atmosphere, that’ll help our players, and a big win and a great night would help us a bunch.”
There are still $2 tickets available on Ticketmaster.com until Sunday night at 11:45 p.m. using the code “2BUCKS.”
The Cats, ranked No. 11 in the preseason polls, sold out Rupp Arena a season ago as a school-record with a school-record 23,706 there to see the game against No. 2 Duke.
