Robert Morris officials confirmed this afternoon that tickets are sold out for the Colonials' first-round National Invitation Tournament game against the Kentucky Wildcats.
The game tips off Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Charles Sewall Center, which seats just over 3,000 people.
RMU will be hosting what is likely its most high-profile opponent in school history, the defending NCAA champions.
This morning, tickets remained.
RMU sports information director Jim Duzyk said because of the large volume of messages the school got over the phone that fans would be more likely to get tickets by picking them up in person on the third floor of the Charles Sewall Center on the Robert Morris campus. But there are none left.
