The Unversity of Louisville has received a limited supply of tickets for its appearance in the 2007 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament first/second round site in Lexington, Ky. The No. 6 seeded Cards will face No. 11 seed Stanford on Thursday, March 15 at 12:40 p.m. ET at Rupp Arena in the first round and should the Cards advance, they would the play the winner of the Texas A&M-Penn game on Saturday 30 minutes following the 1:10 p.m. game.

Season ticket holders who submitted NCAA post-season ticket request forms and were selected in the lottery will be contacted by an athletics department representative by phone no later than Monday evening. Those tickets will be available for pickup at the Brown and Williamson Club, located on the third floor of Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, on Tuesday from 6-9 p.m. or Wednesday from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m.

U of L students who entered the ticket lottery will be notified by phone by Monday evening and may pick up the tickets at the same location and times.

With only a limited number of tickets available within U of L's allotment, the best way to purchase tickets is through Ticketmaster. Cardinal fans may purchase tickets online for $150 plus service fees ($162) by visiting online, calling (502) 361-3100 or by visiting any Ticketmaster Ticket Center, including statewide Kroger locations.

Should the Cardinals advance to San Antonio, Texas, travel packages would be available through Champion Sports Tours by calling 206-5255, toll free at 866-995-7444, or online at

If you're looking to go an alternative route, I'm hearing that your best bet is to go through Best Seats, because the tickets at StubHub have become a bit pricey. I don't know all that much about online tickey buying so take that for what it's worth...which, if you didn't read the first half of this sentence, is very little.

However you choose to do it, if you have the means please support the Cards and make Rupp as close to a home court advantage as possible.

Should the Cards win on Thursday they would play at 3:40 on Saturday.
