The MSU Men’s Basketball team left for Minneapolis Wednesday night.

As of Thursday morning, round trip flights (Friday-Tuesday) from Lansing to Minneapolis or from Detroit to Minneapolis range anywhere from $800 to more than $1,000.

Wednesday afternoon there were a few seats left on the Amtrak train traveling out of East Lansing to Minneapolis Union Station, but as of Thursday morning both trains leaving Friday were sold out.

If you plan to drive, the trip will take about 9.5 hours..

All of this, doesn’t even include the price of tickets to the final four.

MSU is sold out, instead you’re directed to Stub Hub where prices for both of Saturday’s games start at $277 as of Thursday morning.

Hotels near the stadium were either sold out or pretty expensive. The same goes for Air B and B’s.

If you’re hoping to catch the game on your own television at home, you can tune in to CBS.
