Solid Blue Fans Now Closer To Big Blue Madness Tickets

Wednesday morning was the moment Solid Blue fans have been waiting for, the chance to camp out for UK Men’s Basketball Big Blue Madness.

At 5 a.m. UK staff let the fans mark their space with tents on the spray painted lines. 

That’s something Leo O’nan and his friends have done for four years, and by now, they have their own tricks.

"We cheat the system. We get here 30 minutes before 5 a.m. and use our fast feet," said O’nan.

He and the friends he were with all played basketball at Owensboro Catholic together. 

They said they won’t stay in their tent until Saturday, but they will be there to get bracelets Friday at 2 p.m.

Each tent can get four bracelets and those turn into Big Blue Madness tickets Saturday at 7 a.m.
