With more than 2,200 all-time wins, 50 regular season championships, and the top all-time winning percentage, the Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball team is the most successful college program in NCAA history. The Lexington-based university leads Division I with 56 bids to the NCAA Tournament and has earned 8 national titles, second only to UCLA. The team also holds the record for the most NBA Draft selections as well as the most No. 1 picks—not to mention famous players and coaches such as Dan Issel, Pat Riley, Jamal Mashburn, and Antoine Walker. Whether you want to cheer on this legendary team during a game at Rupp Arena or watch them battle it out for another national title, there are affordable tickets for all Wildcats fans.
Head Coach John Calipari has been leading the team since 2009, taking Kentucky to 7 of the last 8 NCAA playoffs and winning in 2012. As 3-time Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year, Calipari has mentored many notable names, including the Washington Wizards’ John Wall, the Phoenix Suns’ Brandon Knight, and the New Orleans Pelicans’ DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis. This year, his roster boasts stars such as top shooters Jermarl Baker and Kevin Knox, as well as the insanely athletic Hamidou Diallo. Together, they’ve been treating fans to a must-watch season of hard-driving action and rim-rattling dunks that could thrill even their toughest of rivals. Can Calipari claim a second tournament title in his time at Kentucky, or will another top team like Kansas or North Carolina win out? Don’t wait to grab your tickets to find out.
