Tickets for UK/Duke in the Champions Classic go on sale Monday

There are a lot of great road trips for Kentucky basketball fans this season, but the most exciting matchup may be UK vs. Duke in the Champions Classic on Tuesday, November 17 at the United Center in Chicago. Want to go to the Windy City to see the Cats take on a longtime rival? Tickets go on sale Monday at noon. 

Ticket prices range from $50 to $200 and can be purchased at, by calling Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000 or by visiting the United Center box office.

Oddly, UK/Duke is the first game of the doubleheader and will tip at 7:30 p.m. Kansas/Michigan State will tip at 10 p.m., even though, to me, it seems the lesser of the two games. But whatever. At least we won’t be dragging as much on Wednesday morning.

Don’t forget: Monday at noon. Go ahead and set a reminder on your phone.

    Interested to see how tickets go on this one. 2 years ago they were sold out immediately and we had to pay a huge premium. After the UK game was over (since it was game 1 even though it was 1vs2), all we did was drink and occasionally would check in on the Duke/Kansas game.

    Last year, tickets were easy to get, and at a good price even though the quality of the teams was still high enough that the demand had to have been there.

      I’m with you, Mc – i paid through the nose to sit in the rafter in ’13…right next to a MSU fan. it was ugly. I think that year had to do with the fact you had Wiggins, Parker, Randle, the Harrisons – BIG freshman names – everyone was curious. This class not as hyped up as that one.
