Lincoln County logistics
Here’s some potentially valuable info for following Lincoln County in the Boys Sweet Sixteen, whether you’re making the trip to Rupp Arena or backing the Patriots from back home when they play Shelby County on Thursday:
- Find rosters and statistics for Lincoln, Shelby and all the other Sweet Sixteen teams at this KHSAA Web page. There are also links to live statistics, which will be updated constantly during the game, to statistics and other info that will be updated as the tourney progresses, brackets and streaming audio.
- Tickets are $11 (upper level) and $16 (lower level), except for those seats in Lincoln’s official cheering section, which are presumably already gone. Tickets can be purchased at the Rupp Arena box office (859-233-3535) or through Ticketmaster.
- Lincoln’s cheering section for its first-round game will be in lower sections 23 and 24 and upper section 224. Those are the end-zone sections closest to the visitors’ bench, which is the bench the Patriots will use as the visiting team in their game. (Here’s a link to a Rupp Arena seating chart.) All tickets are good for both the Lincoln-Shelby game and the South Laurel-Hazard game that precedes it. If the Patriots win, cheering section tickets for their next game will be sold after the game at the arena; listen for announcements late in the game.
- If you’re following the game at home or at work, you can listen to Lincoln’s broadcast on radio at WPBK-FM (102.9) or online at wpbkfm.com, or you can listen to the Sweet Sixteen network online feed from this page. The network broadcast of all tourney games can be heard over the air at WVLK-FM (101.5). You can also tap into live and constantly updated stats from each game at this page.
