LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky basketball fans will pay 13 to 21 percent more for season tickets under the first price increase in three years.

School trustees on Friday approved the increases. Tickets for the lower level in 23,000-seat Rupp Arena will increase from $945 to $1,140 each. Upper-level tickets will rise from $840 to $950 each.

A five-tier price system for single-game seats will increase slightly, ranging from $40 to $95 in the lower bowl and $25 to $90 in the upper level. Prices vary because of the profile of Southeastern Conference and nonleague opponents and which days of the week games are played.

Kentucky’s conference schedule will be released this summer.
