Sunday's Mizzou-KU basketball game is sold out

Tickets to Sunday's Missouri-Kansas Showdown for Relief exhibition basketball game in Kansas City sold out within minutes of going on sale Tuesday. The Sprint Center announced Tuesday that the game has completely sold out.

Both schools were allotted approximately 9,000 tickets to the charity game that will raise funds for hurricane relief efforts in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Missouri's allotment went on sale at 2 p.m. and sold out at 2:10, the school announced. Student tickets were gone in two minutes.

The game, set for a 3 p.m. tipoff, will not be televised, according to the agreement decided on by both schools. The game will be broadcast on Mizzou's radio affiliates around the state, including KTRS 550 AM in St. Louis. (Dave Matter)
