NCAA Tournament - Midwest Regional Tickets
Every year as the college basketball season gets ready to start, each
team is set on piling up enough wins to be selected to take part in the NCAA Tournament in March. By the time March comes
around and the brackets have been set, the teams have a new goal in mind: survive and advance. Teams involved in the Midwest
Regional have already won at least two games in the tournament and now can see the light at the end of the tunnel as they
look to advance past another weekend of the Tournament and into the promised land of the Final Four and potentially the National
Championship Game. These are the teams that have proven to be among the best in college basketball and none of them want to
go home early. The possibility of winning it all has become all too real for each school reaching the second weekend of the
Tournament and anything less than being the last one standing in the Regional Round would be a crushing disappointment.
Midwest Regional has regularly featured some of the best teams and is usually one of the most difficult portions of the tournament
and this year looks to be no different. The 2014 Midwest Regional will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana at Lucas Oil Stadium,
home of the Indianapolis Colts of the NFL and is an arena that has hosted big time college basketball as well. The Sweet Sixteen
will take place on Friday March 28th, while the two winners of Friday's games will square off on Sunday the 30th in the Elite
Eight with a spot in the Final Four on the line. These are four of the best sixteen college basketball teams in the country
all laying it on the line in order to keep their dream season alive. If you are a big time college hoops fan be sure to be
in Indianapolis in late March for the Midwest Regional.
About the Teams
Every year sixty-eight teams are
skilled enough to make it to the NCAA Tournament and are divided into four different regions where they are given seeds from
number one through number sixteen. The number one seed in the region is considered to be one of the top four college basketball
squads in the country and is considered to have a legitimate chance at becoming the eventual the National Champions. However,
as has been proven year after year, in the NCAA Tournament things never go exactly as planned which is precisely why the Tournament
is so exciting. Every year there are a few underdog teams who seemingly come from out of nowhere to upset the powerhouse programs
and continue to advance. This year you may have the chance to see the next legendary Cinderella run take place in Indianapolis
when the Midwest Regional hits Lucas Oil Stadium. The stellar athletes who hit the court during the NCAA Tournament and lead
their schools to victory are some of the NBA stars of the future and you have the chance to see them giving 100 percent for
their school before they make it as pros. Often times the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight are part of the most exciting weekend
in college basketball if not all of sports, and some of the closest games in the NCAA Tournament take place during the Regionals.
Many of the greatest student athletes in the world take part in college basketball, and the game
is in possession of some the most dedicated fans in all of sports, this combination produces an environment that cannot be
found anywhere else in the world of sports. When you step into Lucas Oil Stadium for the first two rounds this will all be
evident. As the teams get set for the opening tip off, fans stand up and loudly cheer for their favorite team. The games continue
with end-to-end action, big-time shots and clutch defensive stops. Suddenly the clock is winding down in the second half and
the two sides are desperately looking to gain control of a game that has been back and forth for most of the afternoon. Anxiety
fills the arena both on the court and in the stands and each possession becomes more and more important. Finally one team
pulls ahead just long enough to advance to the next round and their players and fans explode in ecstasy.
Each year when the calendar flips to March, even the least likely sports fan at work becomes
fascinated with college basketball and an overnight college hoops expert. The annual NCAA Tournament brackets revealed on
Selection Sunday capture the imagination of millions of people across the country and not only give birth to thousands upon
thousands of pools, but a considerable drop off in productivity in the work force as nearly everyone has their eyes keenly
trained on the Tournament at the expense of nearly everything else. Recent years have shown the Tournament to be even more
unpredictable which gives even the least knowledgeable basketball spectator a decent chance at filling out a winning bracket.
NCAA Tournament Trivia
