    Be sure to eat dinner before you get anywhere near the arena! At 5p before a 8p game the wait was over an hour everywhere.

    When coming to a UK basketball game, try to arrive at least one hour early. Traffic congestion!!

    Concessions at Rupp Arena are small and very bland. No alcohol is sold for basketball games. Very big arena. Best parking can be found on the surface lots around High Street.

    Don't see Richie Farmer around the arena much anymore... I guess they are afraid he'll steal something.

    Standing in line at the big concession stand by section 15 and the line is too long? Turn around & go up the stairs behind you. There's another stand upstairs that is usually much less busy.
