(3/23) While the Cleveland Cavaliers have taken the NBA by storm in recent weeks, the team’s home court at the Quicken Loans Arena will be taken over by the NCAA Tournament’s Midwestern Regional this week. Sweet 16 and Elite Eight games will be played in Cleveland on Thursday and Saturday and will most notably feature Kentucky, whose pursuit of the perfect season continues against West Virginia in Thursday’s nightcap.
Prior to that matchup, however, Notre Dame will take on Wichita State at 7:15pm. Thursday at the Quicken Loans Arena will easily be the most expensive ticket among all Sweet 16 regional games, with Midwest Regional tickets on TicketIQ averaging at $439.83 and the get-in price starting at $184.
The Midwest’s Elite Eight game will be played on Saturday. The average price for Elite Eight Midwest Regional tickets is $457.35 and the cheapest ticket is listed for $157.
Kentucky has cruised over its first two games, decimating Hampton and Cincinnati along the way. The Wildcats will now match up against West Virginia, who’s been criticized for its muddy play but has continued to advance in tournament play. Wichita State knocked off No. 2 Kansas over the weekend and now faces a Notre Dame team that battled past No. 14 Northeastern.
If hoping to attend each game at The Q this week, the average secondary price for an All Sessions Pass for the Midwest Regional is $1,063.51. The cheapest All Sessions Pass available is listed for $322.
