FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas men’s basketball team is set to play Kentucky on Saturday afternoon, March 2, at Bud Walton Arena with a 3 p.m. tip and fans planning to attend the game are encouraged to arrive early due to events that are happening around the venue. Doors to Bud Walton Arena will open at 1:30 p.m., and the game is sold out of public reserved tickets.
Along with the Razorback game, Fayetteville High School is hosting the Arkansas State High School Basketball Tournament and the Razorback softball team is hosting the Woo Pig Classic. The events will increase the volume of traffic on roads surrounding their venues which will make for longer than usual travel times to Bud Walton Arena.
The high school tournament will also restrict access to some pay-to-park lots that are typically used for Bud Walton Arena traffic, so alternate parking may need to be found. Additional parking lots on the University of Arkansas campus that can be used include Lot 72 (west of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium), Lot 44 (North of DWRRS) and the Stadium Drive parking deck.
