Now before you guys get on me, I’m not trying to jinx us at all. Anyone who’s ever tried to get tickets to a tournament game knows that you have to start planning way in advance unless you’re makin Heavy Hitter dough and money ain’t no thang. Believe me when I say that I know what it takes to get these tickets and that I know it’s always a huge gamble to buy these things in advance. I was the proud owner of a couple tickets to St. Louis, where I planned to watch the #1 seed Cats play in the Sweet 16 and Elite 8. Enter UAB and exit my hopes and dreams. As a side note, I still went and if you love basketball, it was still worth every penny.
Anyways, the Cats look to be heavy favorites to be one of the four teams making the trip to Indianapolis this year. If you’re going to be one of the lucky ticket holders when the time comes, you need to start planning now. CollegeHoops.net knows that and has taken it upon themselves to give you all the information you need in order to get tickets, plan your trip, know what else is going on in the city and even know where and when all the major events surrounding the tournament are occuring. Use the links below and you’ll be well on your way to living every college basketball fan’s dream:

When you’re not watching the games, there’s plenty of other tourney-related events going on to keep you busy. Here’s a list of some of the other major events going on and all the info you’ll need to get there.
If you find yourself getting all basketballed out, smack yourself and then take a look at this list of other things that Indianapolis has to offer that has nothing to do with the tournament at all.
