INDIANAPOLIS, In. (WKYT) -- There were not a lot of folks from central Kentucky in attendance for Thursday's practice, as we expect the bulk of folks to arrive Friday. For those here Thursday you could feel how pumped the fans are coming off that Wichita State win..we found a lot families taking in practice together.
Cameras were ready inside Lucas Oil Stadium, the Big Blue Nation ready to get a glimpse of their Wildcats. Many fans are from Indiana were beyond excited to have the Cats here.
Its spring break for many of the youngest wildcat fans, the perfect activity, taking the kids to open practice, a win win for both parents and their kids. But some say they would have attended the practice, even if school was in session.
"Even it was a school day I probably would have done it."
Tickets were not easy to get or cheap, for Friday's Sweet 6 game, so families say taking in the Cats for free was the only way to go.
