Organizers for the Red State Blue State Series announced Friday night that anyone who purchases a ticket to the Feb. 2 doubleheader at Broadbent Arena between now and Monday will get a free ticket to the March 3 game featuring Montverde Academy and Huntington Prep at Freedom Hall.
The Feb. 2 slate starts with St. Joseph (N.J.) vs. Ballard at 3 p.m. That game will be followed by Whitney Young (Ill.) vs. Evangelical Christian (Tenn.) at 4:30 p.m. UK commitment Karl Towns (St. Joseph) and UK targets Jahlil Okafor (Whitney Young) and Skal Labissiere (Evangelical Christian) will play in that doubleheader.
Tickets for the Feb. 2 games can be purchased through Ticketmaster or by visiting the Freedom Hall/Kentucky Exposition Center box office. The promo, which ends Monday at 2 p.m., will apply through both vendors. No promo code will be given, but Ticketmaster and the box office will record the customer’s name at time of purchase for their free ticket.
The March 3 game between Montverde and Huntington is scheduled for 4 p.m. That game will feature UK commitment Dakari Johnson (Montverde) and top UK target Andrew Wiggins (Huntington Prep).
