Atlantic 10 Conference 2019 Tourney Tickets On Sale [DATES & TICKET INFO]
The Atlantic 10 is rising to prominence. Look no further than the NBA and you’ll see former Davidson College star Steph Curry dominating. For five days this year, the A10 will storm the courts and compete against each other to see who’s the best team in the conference. And here’s the most important part: The winner of the tourney has an automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament.
Over the years, the conference has remained competitive while developing a history. The Temple Owls have won the most conference championships, beating out their rivals nine times. Though these teams remain competitive during the regular season, you can expect them to take it up a notch when the tourney hits. But if there’s anything to know about the A10, it’s that any team can win on any given night. Just look at Davidson’s loss to UMass or Dayton falling to Rhode Island. Over the years, the tournament has been memorable from the start with Dunquesse knocking out Villanova 57-54. It looks to remain that way.
Amazing programs like Davidson, Dayton, George Mason, St. Bonaventure, and a handful of others round out the conference. Any college hoops fan should keep an eye on this.
That’s not to mention that the tourney has a huge light shined on it. In the middle of a renaissance season by the Brooklyn Nets, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn will host the games. The brand new stadium will be packed with energy and excitement. Last year, Rhode Island topped St. Bonaventure for the title. While it’s unlikely that matchup returns, fresh faces are always welcome. Currently, the George Mason Patriots are projected as the favorites to win the title. Prior to the season, they were projected to be in the NCAA Tournament bubble.
Fans of the game won’t have to even think twice about attending. Tickets for five days worth of games, March 13 to 17, are only $109 on StubHub.com. If for some reason you can’t make it to all the games, don’t worry. On Opening Day, tickets are going from $6 to $64. The next day, in the second round, tickets start out at $6 but top out at $86. All prices are from StubHub.com. This is an outrageous deal. Make sure to see high-quality basketball at a low price.
