If you're going to Indy ...

If you're headed to Indianapolis this week to watch Kentucky in the Sweet 16, here are a few important items you will need to know:

Tickets
Tickets for Kentucky's Sweet 16 game vs. Louisville on Friday are, as you can imagine, either hard to find or expensive. With arguably the game's greatest rivalry taking place just a couple hours north of both schools in the NCAA Tournament, it's a must-have ticket - so much so that Ticketmaster.com is showing that no tickets are available right now.

Ticketmaster does say that tickets at the venue may become available closer to the event. If you're hoping to snag some at the last minute, this is your best shot. You can also visit the NCAA Tournament ticket website for more help.

Open practice
Kentucky will hold an open practice at the Lucas Oil Stadium on Thursday at 1 p.m. The practice will last 50 minutes. If you want to take a look at Louisville, the Cardinals will have their open practice at the same location at 3:10 p.m.

Noon-12:50 p.m. -- Tennessee
1-1:50 p.m. -- Kentucky
2:10-3 p.m. -- Michigan
3:10-4 p.m. CT -- Louisville

UK Alumni Association pregame event
The official UK Alumni Association headquarters will be at Tin Roof (36 S. Pennsylvania St., Indianapolis, IN 46204) during the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight of play in the NCAA Tournament.

UK spirit items will be available. Attendees may purchase drinks and food from the menu. At approximately 6:30 p.m on Friday, the UK band and UK cheerleaders will conduct a pep rally at the venue.

Tin Roof is a short walk (.7 miles) from Lucas Oil Stadium. The UK-Louisville game will be shown at the venue. If Kentucky advances, a similar event will take place.

Weather
Looks like it's going to be cold and rainy in Indianapolis this week. Three of the four days call for rain, and the highest temperature on the forecast is 56 degrees. Good thing they play the games indoors.

  • Thursday - Rain and thunder, high of 53 degrees, low of 48, 90 percent chance of rain
  • Friday - a.m. showers, high 56, low 37, 30 percent chance of rain
  • Saturday - Showers, high 41, low 27, 50 percent chance of rain
  • Sunday - Mostly sunny, high 58, low 40, 0 percent chance of rain

Attractions

If you're looking to kill some time between games, visitindy.com has plenty of attractions to see and do in and around town.

And if you can't make it
Friday's game will be televised at 9:45 p.m. ET on CBS. If you can't watch the game in Indianapolis but want to watch it with other Wildcat fans, here is a list of UK game-watch parties around the country.

Great info - however you have the distance between Tin Roof and Bankers Life Fieldhouse wrong. It's not 0.7 miles... it's literally 1 block away.

You're right that Tin Roof is next door to Bankers Life Fieldhouse, but games are being played at Lucas Oil Stadium. That's why the distance is listed at 0.7 miles.

Will there be a chance for autographs from the team on Friday?

The players will not be available for autographs on Friday so they can focus on the game.

What time is pep rally on Sunday and where is it in Indy?

The UK Alumni Association's official pregame event is at the Tin Roof in Indianapolis (36 S. Pennsylvania St.) starting at 2 p.m. ET.
