KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Thousands of out-of-town fans will be heading to the Sprint Center this weekend to watch their teams play in the Midwest Regional Tournament.

Number one seed North Carolina will play fifth seed Auburn at 6:30 p.m., followed by second seed Kentucky against Houston.

Express lanes will be available at the Sprint Center for people who don't take a bag inside.

The prohibited items at the Sprint Center include backpacks, weapons, laser pointers, coolers and artificial noisemakers.

The Sprint Center also said it'd be a good idea to allow extra time to get downtown as several streets will be closed near the arena.

Tickets to Friday and Sunday games are still available at the Sprint Center website.
