By  | 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WYMT) - Big Blue Nation is starting to swarm Kansas City walking up and down Grand Boulevard and into Kansas City Live ready for the late tip the Cats have Friday night.

BBN is getting ready to hopefully propel their wildcats into an Elite Eight birth.

"We drove here last night, a ten-hour drive, we're super excited," said one Kentucky fan on Friday.

Another fan sold tickets to another regional site, just to make it to Kansas City.

"We bought tickets for the Louisville regional and then, unfortunately, we go to the Midwest. We sold our Louisville tickets to some Purdue fans and decided to make a road trip here over spring break to Kansas City," said another Kentucky fan.

Kentucky will take on Houston tonight at 9:59 p.m. on TBS.

We will update this story with fan reaction throughout the night.
