According to a release from UK Athletic Media Relations, "Kentucky fans have demonstrated their insatiable appetite for basketball. All tickets to the 2011 Big Blue Madness were snapped up in the first 60 minutes of availability Saturday morning.
"Thousands of fans were present at UK's Memorial Coliseum ticket office Saturday at 7 a.m. when the distribution of free tickets began. Others obtained their tickets via the school's Website, UKathletics.com and ticketmaster.com.
"Despite the fact that fans were limited to two tickets per person at UK's Memorial Coliseum ticket office and two per household online, this year's Big Blue Madness event sold out in 60 minutes.
"Big Blue Madness, the first practice opportunity for Kentucky's 2011-12 men's and women's basketball teams, is Friday, Oct.14. Times and broadcast info will be released at a later date.
"This will be the seventh time Madness has been held at Rupp Arena."
