Saint Peter’s Shows the Magic of March in Conquering Powerhouse Kentucky

For one day, the Peacocks—of a tiny Jesuit school in New Jersey—were better than one of college basketball’s ultimate bluebloods.

In the leadup to Saint Peter’s University’s first NCAA tournament game in over a decade,

the Peacocks reached out to Kentucky officials with an offer: buy the remainder of the Peacocks’ ticket allotment for the game

As the story goes, Kentucky was selling tickets for Thursday and Saturday games

not just for Thursday. It had no use for the Peacocks’ Thursday tickets.

Now, Big Blue Nation’s tickets for Saturday might be hitting the secondary market.
