Win Or Lose, UK Plans Public Celebration For Wildcats

Kentucky has announced that it will celebrate the Wildcats' successful season on Tuesday at Rupp Arena.

The school seeks its ninth NCAA basketball title when it faces Connecticut in Monday night's championship in Arlington, Texas. The Wildcats (29-10) are scheduled to land at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Bluegrass Airport and will be bussed immediately to Rupp for a program at their home court that's expected to draw a large crowd.

Free reserved-seat tickets for persons 14 and up will be distributed at 8 a.m. Tuesday at Rupp's ticket office. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.

Kentucky students with ID may request tickets in a special section.

Fans can also cheer the team's bus route from the airport to Rupp. The event will be broadcast on WKYT.
