There are nearly 15,000 seats at the Breslin Center, and hardly a basketball ticket to be found. Tuesday night's Michigan State/University of Illinois match up is sold out, but it's still the hottest ticket in town. On Ebay, two tickets run $849.
From online brokers, center court seats are on sale for $400 and $500. Just to get in the door will likely cost more than $150.
Why all the hype? The honor of unseating the number one undefeated Fighting Illini, and a Big Ten championship for the Spartans are at stake.
