Precautions to be taken during student ticket lottery

The final student ticket lottery for this season's University of Kentucky basketball team is set for Monday night.

It's happening as U.K. officials try to crack down on altered tickets.

Only 8,000 students will be able to line up inside Memorial Coliseum.

U.K. officials warn if you don't have a valid student I.D., you won't be able to get inside.

The line won't start until after 6 p.m. The line will have to be formed by 8 p.m.

Also once inside for the lottery, students won't be able to leave and get back inside.

The extra precautions are happening as some student tickets are being sold online for hundreds of dollars and being passed off as regular tickets.
