    Big 12 Tournament

    Hi All. Long time reader first time poster.

    I'm planning on heading down to the conference tournament this year, and was wondering if you could provide some advice. Where do other Cyclone fans hang out between sessions, good places to eat, etc. But specifically about how the scalping process works. I know it's legal to do in Missouri, but how does it compare to buying tickets off of stubhub or from the Sprint Center? Trying to plan the financials accordingly for the wife and myself. Thanks for the help!

    Re: Big 12 Tournament

    Right across the street from the Sprint there will be Cyclone fans in various restaurants/bars. Last year i picked up a ticket online because I wanted to make sure I sat in the Cyclone section. Paid around $130 I believe for lower level. I have not heard what sections we will be in this year but when I find out I will purchase tickets on line.

    Re: Big 12 Tournament

    This is some generic advice for last year's tournament. Assuming most will hold true again this year.

    Re: Big 12 Tournament

    Do they have student tickets available for the Big 12 tournament? Paying over $100 dollars for each session is a little out of my price range.

    Re: Big 12 Tournament

    A place we like to go to where the service is good and so is the scenery is Quaffs. Always lots of ISU folk in there. Of course with the tournament split that may not be the case any more, but worth a try.

    Re: Big 12 Tournament

    We were able to scalp lower bowl tickets for $30/seat about 5 minutes before tip-off since ISU was the last game of the night. Scalpers were complete d***s negotiating before the Missouri game but once that game was over they were low balling each other to sell them. Another tactic you can try is buying tickets off fans from earlier games. Ran across some Mizzu fans selling their tickets for $15/each, upper level (game before us).

    No, they never have "student tickets" to the tournament.

    Re: Big 12 Tournament

    Does anyone know when Iowa State will be sending out tickets purchased through them? I filled out that order form and sent it in a while back but haven't really heard anything since.

    Re: Big 12 Tournament

    We usually purchase full session passes (uppers ~ $200). Then we'll sell off the non ISU session unless there's a really interesting session we want to see. Up to this point we've always gotten our money back and then some, and watched ISU play for free. If ISU would win some games that would no longer be the case, but obviously thats what we're all hoping for!
