University of Kentucky officials said all of the tickets for Big Blue Madness were distributed in 45 minutes Saturday morning.

Thousands of fans were at UK's Memorial Coliseum ticket office when the distribution of the free tickets began at 6 a.m. Others obtained tickets online.

Even with a limit of two tickets per person in line and two per household online, the tickets disappeared quickly.

Big Blue Madness, the first practice opportunity for Kentucky's men's and women's basketball teams, is Oct.16 at 7:30 p.m.

Fans will be allowed to enter Rupp Arena beginning at 6 p.m.
