UNLV basketball fans are invited to a team send-off for the NCAA Tournament today on campus at about 4:45 p.m.
The Rebels will board a bus in the white lot of the Thomas & Mack Center parking lot and then leave for the McCarran International Airport. After that, the next time to see them will be in San Jose, Calif., at the HP Pavilion, where UNLV will have its open practice from 4:25 to 5:05 p.m. on Wednesday.
And if you’re looking for other things to do while in San Jose, we’ve got you covered: 6 things to do in San Jose when you aren't watching the Rebels.
Plenty of tickets still available
Both UNLV and Cal sold out their ticket allotments within about 24 hours of seeing their names on the CBS Selection Show.
Every school in the NCAA Tournament gets 550 tickets for the Round of 64, with that number increasing as the team advances. Since the tickets through the school are gone, the best places to start are probably ticketmaster.com (starting at $126) or stubhub.com ($99).
The latter had cheaper tickets as recently as Monday night but sold out of them. Stubhub also has up to six courtside seats next to each other for $750 apiece, if that’s your thing.
