    Just wondering how easy it is get basketball tickets, similiar to football? Thought about driving over from CR on some of the saturdays and don't have tickets, didn't know if there is a large selection from scalpers typically?

    Re: scalpers at basketball?

    Always seems to be people selling tickets on the south side of Hilton. You could probably pick some up for free, we have a block of tickets and for one reason or another we always have a few people that don't go. Today would not be a good day to hang outside waiting for tickets. The bigger the game the more $.

    Id bet you could pick some up today either on here or at Hilton for next to nothing.

    Picked up several tickets on the south side of hilton before and usually for between $1 and $5


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
