If Colorado basketball fans want to catch a glimpse of Kansas' Andrew Wiggins when he comes to Boulder on Dec. 7, they'll first have to watch the Buffaloes' women's team.

Students who want tickets to the Kansas game can only obtain them at the end of Wednesday's Iowa-Colorado women's game (though 500 tickets will be held back for students who cant attend the game). There's a page on the school's athletics website devoted to how the distribution process will work:

"You will swipe your Buff OneCard and receive a wristband, which you will need to keep on," the page reads. "Your wristband guarantees you your ticket to the Kansas game. If you leave the Events Center prior to the conclusion of the game, your wristband will be removed. At the conclusion of the women's basketball game, you will be asked to go onto the court to the ticket office representatives where you will be handed your ticket and your wristband will be removed. At the Kansas game on December 7, you will be asked to present your ticket with your Buff OneCard for admittance. Only those students with tickets will be able to attend the Kansas game."

Colorado's women's team is 2-0 and ranked No. 16 in the country, while the men are 4-1 and unranked. Only 1,807 were in attendance — in an arena with a capacity of more than 11,000 — for the women's team's win over Alcorn State on Friday.

Hopefully for the women's team, a "We want Wiggins" chant doesn't break out.
