Optimistic UA Wildcat fans — or those who simply love college basketball — should be hunting for their Sweet 16 or Elite 8 tickets now, rather than later.

Assuming University of Arizona coach Sean Miller and his team beat Harvard Saturday, they will be heading to the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday for the next round in the NCAA Western Regional Tournament.

The eight teams lucky enough to win will stay in L.A. and play the next round on March 30.

Tickets start to disappear and prices start to go up as people’s favorite teams advance.

The UA has an unknown number of tickets available, but those are only for season ticket holders and donors who have earned enough points and win a drawing.

Fans can’t buy tickets at the Staples Center, either.

The best bet: Go to www.ticketmaster.com or an online marketplace like www.stubhub.com or www.primesports.com.

A simple Google search for NCAA Western Regional Tickets offers several other online outlets to compare prices.
