    $365 for one seat. Court side and closer to the floor require a $200 to 600 donation per seat.


    That is for 17 games.


    That isn't too bad

    Worst/cheapest seats possible- $950. Upper level behind basket.

    Upper Sideline- $1150-1400. $0-1,000 donation.

    Lower level basket $1400 and $1000 donation.

    Lower sideline- $1500. 3 donation levels- $1000, $2500 and $5000.

    So $950 to $6500.

    Cheapest seats were $500 last time I checked. Courtside seats are in the thousands and require large donations. Any seat that's more expensive than the $500 level requires a donation.

    They tend to run discounts for alumns/current students I think. They're for the worst of the worst seats but prices drop to $250.

    We try to hide him, but I don’t think it works. Dancing man is our dark secret. He made sportscaster by dropping that secret

    No, he doesn't dance anymore, he thought it was a good idea to pick up a young girl and slide down the rail with her. He dropped her half way down and UK/Rupp put an end to his shtick.

    Meh....I've seen some comparisons to Oladipo and OG. And to be fair, at this point in their careers, they are similar. Now...Does he elevate to that level? I dunno. The kid though has some tools. Very athletic. He's a Top 75 kid, and moving. Time will tell. IMO, I think the kids going to be really good by the time he's a junior.

    Welcome to Kentucky basketball.

    Now let us suppose that you have the money. Try to get some prime UK tickets.

    Good luck.

    I was on the list for 20 years and never got picked.

    As many as you guys pack in to Rupp, I figured they would be cheaper.

    They're just going to get harder as we've basically cut our capacity down 3-4K to put in seat backs in upper arena(this season), and club seating(next season).

    I could be wrong, but I think we're one of the few programs that is self sufficient and give money back to the University instead of take. Someone more knowledgeable could probably expand better than me.

    According to the WSJ(Wall Street Journal), Kentucky, IU and UL are 1, 2 and 3 in terms of most valuable CBB programs:

    1. UK---$246 Million
    2. IU----$243 Million
    3. UL---$233

    Pretty cool, really. No other programs reached $200 million; Fourth was Kansas @ $191 million.

    It's great we don't need anyone else. Our fans will supply us with everything.

    The WSJ article on this from last year has:

    1) UK $334M
    2) KU $320M
    3) Lville $238M
    4) Duke $202M
    5) IU $196M

    I can't imagine KU and UK are that far ahead of #3. Especially if the #'s you quoted above are only a year or two old.

    grabbed this version bc it shouldn't have a paywall (if you have a 247 account).

    Having experienced all 3 venues they are the best in the U.S.

    I would love to see fact based arguments against those three.

    Assembly Hall looks goofy, IMO.

    UK has the best following in the sport. Others may argue otherwise, but no one comes close.

    I have been to assembly hall often. It is the smallest 17,000 seat facility that I have ever attended; however, it give Indiana a very valuable home court.

    UK is 3-9 at Assembly Hall. Very tough place to play.

    It is. We have won there 4 times I can think of, off the top of my head.

    When they get rolling and the crowds into it, its damn tough.
