UK fans excited for upcoming game between Dominican team and former Cats

Tickets for an upcoming exhibition game between Coach Cal's Dominican national team and a team of former Cats are now on sale.

A small crowd gathered outside the Rupp Arena ticket office just before the tickets went on sale at 10 Monday morning.

Many UK fans say they're thrilled to get tickets for the game, which is set for August 15 at Rupp Arena.

"When we first heard about it, I told my husband we gotta see that game," UK fan Jean Labude said.

For Labude, a season ticket holder since Rupp Arena opened in 1976, waiting in line for tickets wasn't really a pain in the neck. It was more a pain in her knee.

The former UK employee had knee replacement surgery in April. She was hoping this game would be her chance to get out of the nosebleed section.

"I came here at nine o'clock and wanted to make sure I got the tickets," Labude said. "Couldn't get lower arena except behind the baskets, and we don't like those seats, so we're in the upper arena."

Coach John Calipari will coach his Dominican national team against the likes of former Cats such as John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo, and Tayshaun Prince.

Tickets for the game are available through Ticketmaster for $35 and $15.
