In case you had forgotten about the special since last season, UK is once again making Erupption Zone tickets available to the general public for the basketball games over Christmas break. Tickets for the next three games [Samford (Tomorrow), Loyola-MD (Thurs. at 1 p.m.), and Lamar (Dec. 28)] will be available for purchase at the Rupp Arena box office on the day of the game.
The tickets are $5 each, and each person must be present in line to purchase one of them. They’ll go on sale 90 minutes before game time and must be purchased with straight cash, homey. It’s a great way to see the Cats for a ridiculously low price, and I would encourage everyone to get in on the deal so there are actually some people in the end zone for the games. I’d especially encourage you to make it out for tomorrow and next Wednesday’s games, but not so much for the one Thursday afternoon because I’m thinking about making the drive from Louisville and I’ll be pretty upset if you guys buy them all out before I can get there.
General admission tickets are also still available for the Samford and Loyola games, according to UK Athletics. Once the SEC season gets started tickets will be hard to come by, so this may be your best and most economical way to see the Cats this season if you haven’t already. Just don’t buy them all before I get mine. Seriously.
