Since Saturday, after Texas (who comprise 30 percent of ticket buyers) it seems Oklahoma fans are most interested in making the trip, as they make up 10 percent of those shopping. After Oklahoma is New York (9 percent), California (5 percent) and Pennsylvania (5 percent). North Carolina makes up 4 percent, but as the last team to clinch that number is likely to go up.
After Oklahoma won Saturday, median listing prices for the semifinals went up about 13 percent, from $456 to $513. However, 24 hours later they have dropped back down a bit, as the current median listing price for the semifinals is $465.
