Best Lower Level Seats for Kentucky Basketball

Sit as close to center court as possible - in any row - for the best experience at a Kentucky game.

If you sit in one of the front rows in one of these side sections you'll have extra-comfortable Courtside seats. And if you're in a higher row, you'll have a more comfortable view of the court.

We're not a big fan of end sections because the basket disrupts your view. And we think corner sections are too far removed from the court.

Best Lower Level Seats for a Concert

For most concerts, the best seats on the Lower Level will be in sections 13 and 32. When the stage is setup on the West end of the arena, these are the closest side sections with a clear view of the stage.
