Camping out for Duke Tickets
Part of the reason that Cameron Indoor Arena holds so much mystique for college basketball fans is around the difficulty surrounding getting a ticket. With enough students to fill the entire arena alone, Duke University has put in place measures which limit the number of students who get to attend each game. Cameron Crazies, as they are known, will camp out in front of Cameron for days before a big game, in order to draw lots of tickets so they can go inside and cheer for their team. Here is a picture of the tents that student groups build in front of the stadium. This little community of tents is known as Krzyzewskiville, named after the famous Duke Basketball Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski, or coach K to those who do not want to try and butcher the name.
For those of you who are not students, I would recommend the ticket office first, and then purchasing it from a scalper second if you want to ensure you can get in the game.
