    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.

    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.
