How to get tickets for Thursday’s game against Kentucky

Cole Claybourn

Per WKU Athletics:

Thursday’s game between 16 seed WKU and No. 1 seed Kentucky is sold out. No tickets are available through the KFC Yum! Center.

WKU’s allotment of 550 tickets — the same number distributed to each of the eight participating teams — will be distributed among students, season ticket holders, Hilltopper Athletic Foundation members and those associated with the team (friends, family, etc.).

Students will be able to purchase one ticket through a random lottery system by signing up by 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Diddle Arena ticket office. Students need to show their WKU student ID. All tickets are $60.

Athletics Director Ross Bjork tweeted that 10 percent of WKU’s ticket allotment will go toward students.

Students will be notified between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. if their name is drawn.

Tip-off for Thursday’s game is set for 5:50 CT.
