Great attractions are close to Big 12 basketball tourney

By Bryan Richardson

The Wildcats will be playing in the Big 12 men’s basketball tournament Wednesday through Saturday at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.

There are 7,952 square miles in the Kansas City metropolitan area, full of historic sites, beautiful surroundings and interesting people.

But right now, none of those things matter to sports fanatics, since they are there for one thing and one thing only: basketball. Lodging isn’t available inside the Sprint Center, though, so going outside is a necessity at some point.

For those who aren’t looking to stray far from the Big 12 tournament mecca, here are a few areas to visit within minutes of the Sprint Center.
