NCAA Tournament 2016: East Regional
This year's NCAA Tournament East Regional will be played at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on March 25 and March 27. The top seed in this region, No. 1 North Carolina, is now one of the tournament favorites after two strong performances in wins over FGCU and Providence. The Tar Heels will take on No. 5 seed Indiana, which survived a tough matchup against rival Kentucky to earn a Sweet 16 bid. Also playing in Philadelphia will be No. 7 Wisconsin, which upset No. 2 Xavier on a last-second buzzer-beater from guard Bronson Koenig. A first round loss from No. 3 West Virginia to No. 14 Stephen F. Austin cleared the path for No. 6 Notre Dame to make it to Philadelphia, and the Irish will take on the Badgers in an ACC-Big Ten battle. Right now, tickets to the East Regional are the most expensive of any site, topping the games that will be played in Louisville (South Regional), Anaheim (West Regional), and Chicago (Midwest Regional).
