DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — After Wednesday night’s win at home, the University of Dayton Flyers are headed to Columbus for the next round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

The Flyers beat Boise State and will play Providence at 10 p.m. Friday in Columbus at Nationwide Arena.

Here’s what Flyers fans need to know:

TICKETS: Fans wanting to attend Friday night’s game could still purchase tickets as of Thursday afternoon. Seats close to the court were sold out, but fans willing to sit in the nose bleeds can get a ticket for $71 on the lower end. UD had no tickets to directly sell to fans, but they were available via Ticketmaster. Click here to purchase tickets. UD is the second session game, so doors at Nationwide Arena will not open until the arena is cleared from the first session.

Session 1 is anticipated to end around 7 p.m. ET and session 2 is anticipated to start around 7:30 p.m. ET.

There will be pedestrian and traffic issues for fans arriving for session 2 entering parking lots and arena while fans for Session 1 are leaving.

PARKING: There are numerous parking lots around Nationwide Arena. The parking lots require paying as drivers enter to expedite the process when vehicles leave the garage after the game. Here’s the parking map, which also shows ATM locations:

GATHERINGS: UD alumni and Flyer Faithful are invited to a get together at 6 p.m. Friday at LC Pavilion, 405 Neil Ave. in Columbus. Tickets are $20 and will include food, bands and two drink tickets. There will also be a watch party at that location. If UD wins, there will be a gathering at the same place Sunday.
