3/11/14 – Texas residents will be treated to some big-time basketball this year beginning with second-and-third round games in the 2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at AT&T Center. Creighton and Iowa State are currently projected as 3 seeds and the highest ranked programs to play in San Antonio March 21 and 23. Because St. Louis and Milwaukee are full, San Antonio is closer in proximity than Raleigh for the two schools.

The AT&T Center, home to the Spurs, will be one of eight sites for the sub-regional men’s games March 21 and 24.

Session 3 tickets for the third round of NCAA tournament play range between $82-$792 in San Antonio. Both third round winners will advance to the West Regional in Anaheim, CA on their road to the Final Four at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, TX.
