MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) – With just days to plan a trip to see the Memphis Tigers play in the Big Dance, fans are scrambling to find tickets and make reservations.

If you plan to see the Tigers take on the George Washington Colonials on Friday, you have some fast planning to do.

The tournament will take place in the PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC. The facility's website is a great resource for mapping out your trip. The website lists a dozen hotels that will put you close to the action. It also provides directions to the arena and parking information.

Some of the hotels suggested are already booked up, but those with available rooms are renting from around $170 per night. A Days Inn is listed for about $70 per night.

Next, are you going to drive or fly to Raleigh? It is a long drive, about 11 hours, but doable. If you choose to fly, you should start looking at your options now. Flights are running about $650 and higher for roundtrip tickets.

As for getting tickets to the game, StubHub could be your best bet. Tickets are starting at around $90 for a two-game session on Friday on the popular ticketing website.

Once you've got all of that figured out, you just need to decide what to wear. Once you do, send your photos to Action News 5 at my5@wmctv.com!
