INDIANAPOLIS (LANSING STATE JOURNAL) - Willing to dole out some dough to see the Spartans take on Duke in Friday's Sweet 16 match-up? Or maybe you are just looking for a hot spot to watch the game in Indy?
If you're looking for seats, folks are selling tickets to both Friday's and Sunday's games for a minimum of $200 a pair, and prices stretch upwards to more than $600 on craigslist.org.
Stubhub.com has tickets for both the region's semi-finals and finals games beginning at about $99. Big spender? Highest-priced tickets, for admission to Lucas Oil Stadium suites, are $6,000 each. Floor tickets range from $1,200 to nearly $3,000.
All-session tickets through razorgator.com range from $114 for the upper tier tickets to $1,022 for floor seats.
Indianapolis hotel rooms are also available for an average of $96 a night, according to expedia.com.
If you would rather watch the game with fellow MSU fans in Indy, but not necessarily first-hand at the stadium, head to Fox & Hound, 4901 E. 82nd Street, where Indianapolis-based Spartan alums bleed green.
MSU Alumni Association of Central Indiana board member Ryan Wilmering said MSU fans also tend to swing by the Slippery Noodle, 372 South Meridian Street, where Tom Izzo made an appearance following the team's 2000 National Championship win.
Indianapolis usually sees heavy green-and-white turnouts for prominent MSU games, Wilmering said, but he anticipates plenty of Louisville fans will also head to the city this weekend as well. The Easter holiday could also affect Spartan turnout, he said.
WZZM Note: University of Michigan plays Friday night as well, in Dallas vs. the University of Kansas. if anyone has tips for visiting Dallas, let us know!
