NCAA Tournament 2016: Midwest Regional
This year's NCAA Tournament Midwest Regional will be played at the United Center in Chicago on March 25 and March 27.
The biggest upset in this quarter of the bracket was when No. 2 Michigan State lost to No. 15 Middle Tennessee State in the first round of the tournament, one of the biggest upsets in the history of March Madness. The loss of Michigan State helped clear the path for No. 10 Syracuse to reach the Sweet 16. Joining the Orange in Chicago will be another double-digit seed, as No. 11 Gonzaga cruised past No. 3 Utah in the second round. At the top half of the bracket No. 1 Virginia and No. 4 Iowa State both advanced without much fanfare.
The Virginia-Iowa State game is set to tip off at 6:10 local time, while the Gonzaga-Syracuse game will tip about 30 minutes after the first game ends.
Right now the Midwest Regional is the second least expensive, topping the games that will be played in Louisville (South Regional), but falling below the games played in Anaheim (West Regional), and Philadelphia (East Regional). A full strip is reselling for an average of $432, while tickets to just the Sweet 16 games are reselling for an average of $248 each. A ticket to the Elite 8 game is reselling for an average of $192.
