If you're a fan of basketball there's a time of year that's extra special. It's that time when everywhere you turn, sports fanatics are talking about bubble teams, brackets, and buzzer beaters. What are we talking about? March Madness, of course!

March Madness refers to that time of year (usually mid-March through the beginning of April) when the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) men's and women's college basketball tournaments are held.

Only 16 teams (the "Sweet Sixteen") make it past the first weekend. The second weekend narrows the field first to the "Elite Eight" and then the "Final Four. The final weekend focuses on the four semifinalists. The two semifinal victors move on to play in the national chamionship game.

This year, the Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on March 7th – 11th, 2017.  Fifteen teams will take to the hardwood for five action packed days, concluding the day before NCAA Selection Sunday with a fight for the ACC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Tickets for the 2017 New York Life ACC Tournament Opening Round on March 7th are on sale now. The Opening Round Sessions include tickets to all three games held at 12PM, 2PM, & 7PM.
