Hundreds line up to get UK celebration tickets

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Hundreds of fans are lined up in hopes of landing a seat for the UK Men's Basketball team season celebration.

Fans actually camped out as soon as the championship game between UK and UConn ended on Monday night. Some fans drove for hours just to be a part of this homecoming event.

On Tuesday morning, the Rupp ticket office began handing out tickets to waiting fans. The event is free.

The welcome home event for the team begins Tuesday afternoon at Rupp, shortly after the team plane touches down at Blue Grass Airport. They're scheduled to land at 2:00 p.m. They will then board a bus that will carry them through town and down to Rupp Arena.

If you can't make it down to Rupp on Tuesday afternoon, WKYT will offer live coverage beginning at 2:30.
