College Basketball Ticket Information
The college basketball season is one of the most exciting parts of the college sports year, and the unpredictability of conference tournaments and, to a greater extent, the NCAA Tournament, make for must-see TV. Most college basketball conferences include round robin schedules, with each school playing every team in their division or conference at least once, with many conference schedules including two games against rival opponents. One of the great things about March Madness is how teams can gather momentum late in the season despite a mediocre start, such as the Connecticut Huskies in 2011, who won five games in five days to win the Big East Tournament and went on to win the National Championship Game.
The traditional blue blood programs are in the thick of things again this year, while a few programs have brought themselves to the forefront of the race to the national championship. The defending champion, North Carolina, is among those schools previously mentioned that had an uneven season up until the last couple weeks of the regular season, possibly kickstarting a repeat trip to the Final Four. Meanwhile, teams that have reached their program-highs in rankings this season include Virginia (No. 1), Xavier (No. 3) and Purdue (tied, No. 3). Additionally, Texas Tech and Auburn have come out of nowhere to threaten traditional powers in their respective conferences.
As conference tournaments get set to kick off, plenty of teams look to have legitimate shots at automatic NCAA Tournament bids in their respective league tourneys. In the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, for example, there are five teams tied for first place. Michigan State, Purdue and Ohio State are battling at the top for the Big Ten. And seven teams in the ACC are separated by just a few games. Cap off the conference tournaments with a visit to any one of the many NCAA Tournament locations across the country. From some of the most impressive football stadiums around to state-of-the-art basketball arenas, the NCAA Tournament holds no limits as to where games are played. Get your tickets now!
