It's amazing how big this place is. I only go to concerts and they only use half the auditorium. During basketball, I am told the entire place fills up. Functional.

My friends and I are huge Indiana Fans but was really unique to see a great place like legendary Rupp Arena. Go Hoosiers but cool to see!

Best place on earth to watch a basketball game. Been to Rupp many times and never let down. I have never been to a game where Big Blue lost. You want the most excitement you will ever see at a basketball game, then Rupp is for you.

Say no more. Big Blue Nation stand up. Kentucky basketball dominates the region when in season. It literally places the region in suspended animation, and do not let them lose. lets just say, they take their basketball serious.
