LEXINGTON, Ky. – Once again, Kentucky fans have demonstrated their insatiable appetite for basketball. All tickets to the 2013 Big Blue Madness were snapped up in the first 30 minutes of availability Saturday morning.
Thousands of fans were present at UK's Memorial Coliseum ticket office Saturday at 7 a.m. when the distribution of free tickets began. Others obtained their tickets via the school's Website, UKathletics.com and Ticketmaster.com.
Despite the fact that fans were limited to four tickets per person at UK's Memorial Coliseum ticket office and four per household online, this year's Big Blue Madness event sold out in 30 minutes.
Big Blue Madness, the first open practice opportunity for Kentucky's 2013-14 men's and women's basketball teams, is Friday, Oct.18.
This will be the ninth time Madness has been held at Rupp Arena.
