Sweet 16 Games At Madison Square Garden Are An Enormous RipoffKyle Wagner3/28/14 2:24pmFiled to: march madnessticket pricesRegressing30EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkThis year, the NCAA tournament's East regional is holding Sweet 16 games at The World's Most Famous Home Of Bad Basketball Teams, historic(ish) Madison Square Garden. The price for one of the good seats? On average, $1,100. And that isn't even getting into the floor seats. According to Vivid Seats, which supplied us this data, this year's two Sweet 16 games and one Elite Eight game at MSG are 20 percent more expensive on the secondary market than last year's when they were in the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. This is due to both the traditionally insane prices at MSG and the UConn-Iowa State game giving Connecticut residents and fans the chance to hike down I-95 and overload the building, like they used to for the Big East Tournament or St. John's games.
