Like college basketball players putting in their first workout of the season, University of Kentucky fans sweated, sprinted and battled for position early Wednesday morning.
The occasion was the start of UK’s annual campout for Big Blue Madness tickets outside Memorial Coliseum. Fans lined up across the street were turned loose around 5 a.m. to set up tents around the Coliseum in preparation for Friday’s distribution of tickets for the Oct. 13 celebration of the start of Wildcats basketball practice.
The free tickets for Big Blue Madness will be distributed at 10 p.m. on Friday at the Memorial Coliseum ticket windows on Avenue of Champions and online at Ticketmaster.com.
Big Blue Madness will start at 7 p.m. Oct. 13 in Rupp Arena and will be televised on the SEC Network.
