Tomorrow’s game is a pretty big deal.

VCU will take on No.20 Butler in a nationally televised ESPN2 contest that pits the two 2011 Final 4 participants in a bit of a rematch of the two up-and-coming programs.

Tickets have been sold out for a long time and are going for as much as $400 (and climbing) online.

Student tickets were given out early, but that hasn’t stopped some Ram fans for making sure they don’t just get in, but get the best seats in the house.

VCU fan, Brandon Alness, started the line YESTERDAY, as in two days before the game, and “Shakaville” has officially sprung up at the Siegel Center. A number of Ram fans have been camping out at the front of the line for tomorrow’s matchup, and more are expected to arrive this evening for tomorrow’s noon tip.
