Jayhawks fans flocking to Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The get-in-the-door price for tickets to see top-seeded Kansas play third-seeded Oregon for a spot in the Final Four was about $250 about 90 minutes before tipoff.

Folks trying to buy a seat can thank the location for that.

With the Sprint Center in downtown Kansas City about 40 minutes from the Jayhawks' campus in Lawrence, tickets have been in high demand. Seats in the lower bowl were going for several times that much, according to those scalping tickets in the vicinity of the arena.

Nearby, the Power and Light District of restaurants and bars - where our own 13 NEWS' Tori Mason was hanging out - was packed with fans wearing red and blue colors, making it a veritable road game for the Ducks.
