Arizona's first game boasts highest first-round ticket prices

Boise, Idaho (Tucson News Now) - If you're thinking about making a last minute trip to Boise, ID for the Wildcats first game in the NCAA tournament, your bank account might not be too happy.

According to data released by Vividseats, Arizona's first game against Buffalo on Thursday has one of the highest median ticket prices in the country for the first and second rounds.

The average ticket price in Boise for the first game was listed at $463 a ticket with entry level, nosebleed seats selling for $280 each.

Unsurprisingly, the cheapest tickets come during the "First Four" matchups between teams looking to solidify their place in the tournament. Tickets for the LIU Brooklyn vs Radford St. and Bonaventure vs UCLA games have a media ticket price of only $89.

As the playing field narrows though, ticket prices for every location are sure to soar even higher.

The Arizona Wildcats tip off on Thursday at 6:40 p.m. on CBS inside Taco Bell Arena.
