Kentucky’s stunning upset by St Peter’s is peak March Madness

In the leadup to Saint Peter’s University’s first NCAA tournament game in over a decade, the Peacocks reached out to Kentucky officials with an offer: buy the remainder of the Peacocks’ ticket allotment for the game.

It’s a fairly standard request at events like this, particularly considering Saint Peter’s is a tiny Jesuit school in New Jersey hundreds of miles away from Indianapolis, playing against perhaps the largest fanbase in the sport.

Kentucky declined. Why

As the story goes, Kentucky was selling tickets for Thursday and Saturday games, not just for Thursday. It had no use for the Peacocks’ Thursday tickets.
