The Kansas Jayhawks have only lost one game this season at Allen Fieldhouse this season and enter Wednesday night’s game with a good opportunity to keep just that one loss on their season record. Kansas will host Texas Tech for the home regular season finale before finishing the regular season Saturday afternoon at West Virginia. With most of college basketball’s top games of the week taking place over the weekend, Wednesday night’s Kansas game is the second most expensive average ticket on the secondary market behind only North Carolina at Duke.
Kansas basketball tickets have an average price of $190.96 with a get-in price of $88 against Texas Tech. This isn’t one of the top rivalry games so common this week as the Red Raiders enter the game with a 13-16 record and ninth place in the Big 12 and the game is well below the average price for other Kansas home games this season. Even below average prices for a Jayhawks home game, though, remains one of the highest priced games of the week across the NCAA. Both prices have gone up since Monday afternoon when the average price was $180 and the get-in price was just $76.
With only three conference losses, Kansas has already clinched the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament and the below season average price for Wednesday night could be a result of some Jayhawks fans saving their money for Big 12 tournament tickets, hoping the team can win the conference tournament for the seventh time in the past nine seasons. The Big 12 tournament starts March 12 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. As the top seed, the Jayhawks’ first game will be at 2:00pm on March 13 against the winner of the tournament’s opening game between the No. 8 and No. 9 seeds. The average price for that session is currently just $163.61 on the secondary market with a get-in price of $68. The average price for the championship game is just below $200 with a $95 get-in price.
While Jayhawks fans can start looking forward to the Big 12 tournament, the team still has two game to play before the regular season is completed. Even the two opponents combined for a .500 record, Kansas still has NCAA tournament seeding to worry about and don’t need a loss to Texas Tech or West Virginia in the final week of the season on their resume. For Jayhawks fans who will be staying in Lawrence through the tournaments or just haven’t gotten to see a game at Allen Fieldhouse this year, Wednesday night represents a great opportunity to send the team off at a price well below the season average.
