    Scalpers?

    So I'm looking to go to the ISU-Oklahoma men's basketball game on the 18th. Tried to get 2 tickets for my Dad and I to go but there were only single seats left available on the cyclones.com ticket site.

    Does anyone know what the scalper situation typically is at games? Will I easily be able to find some tickets? Will I be able to pay a somewhat reasonable price?

    I just don't want to drive all the way over from Cedar Rapids just to not be able to get tickets.

    Thanks for any info you can provide.

    There will be scalpers out front, guaranteed.

    I waited out front at the KU game and about 1:05 tickets started going very cheap. If your willing to miss a few minutes you'll get a great deal.

    There was a thread a while back, and I think that might be the same name mentioned on who to look for.
    I thought a scalper even posted on here.

    If you pay attention to the ticket exchange board you can probably find someone selling tickets on here for a lot cheaper and they can transfer them via ticketmaster for a couple bucks extra.
