MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Memphis Tigers fans are preparing for the team's trip to the NCAA men's basketball tournament.

"I'm a teacher and we're on Spring Break, so it turned out perfectly," said Tigers fan Brynn Hernandez.  "But I do have sick days.  So either way, I probably would have figured it out."

Tickets available through Tulsa's BOK Center cost $237 for the weekend.

The cheapest flight Action News 5 found on Expedia.com was $980.  According to Google Maps, the road trip is about 400 miles, mostly on I-40 West.

A Greyhound bus trip to Tulsa costs about $200.

Tigers fan Carol Parker said she would not be making the trip to Tulsa.

"I'm going to tape it and watch it," said Parker.

Parker said she would only miss the game if she is "dead."
