Anybody know if these games are general admission? People who bought the full package through Fordham let me know that there are no details as to section or anything on their tickets. Thanks.
5 games in 6 days? What could go wrong.

I have gone to Brooklyn and purchased individual session tickets in the past. Guys are scalping them for reasonable prices because it is never sold out. Not sure of the price per session but if you go to the Barclays ticket site you can probably find out. Oh, if you want you can also contact Rhody's ticket office and usually get good seats. I have looked at tickets from teams in the first round of games because they are always available.

Thanks. My question is about where each teams section might be rather than how to get tickets.

Gotcha. Fordham’s athletic dept would know for the first game.

I believe they’re split. You can GA or certain

Ken Pom has Dayton as the favorite:

I always wonder what Ken Pom's percentage is of picking throughout the season.
0.8 % chance? Let's go Spiders 😆
I have a ticket for tomorrow and 1 for Wednesday morning two for Wednesday evening session. 25 per session if anyone interested.

Bill will take one if you throw in your puffy 90s Yankee dugout jacket.

Why did you buy a Tuesday ticket to begin with, Rich? Well?!
I wish the A10 realized they were a regional, but strong mid major conference and played the conference tournament in an arena that doesn't look empty if there aren't 10K fans in attendance.

How many years are we going to play in front of flies at Barclays before we realize maybe we should play in smaller venues located closer to the majority of our schools? It should be in Philadelphia or DC most years. I honestly wouldn't be opposed to playing it at Richmond's new multi-purpose arena in the future, but doubt that would fly amongst the 13 other programs.

Teams seeded 10-15 should be played at the higher seed and then you go on to play at the Palestra/ Entertainment & Sports Arena then on to Wells Fargo/ Capital One Arena for the final. A10 tourney games rarely exceed 9K in announced attendance and those numbers are still pretty inflated.

TEN schools in the conference draw less than 3,800 fans a game at home and we really think fans of those schools can fill up an arena hours from their home court on a weekday? A10 optics are terrible for this tournament, and it would be great to see a packed house for the quarters and semis regardless of who is playing.

season ticket holders got all session passes at a discount. I still may go to Wednesday but not sure my schedule allow it. I am a basketball junky. Also it helps Fordham if we sell out our school allotment and we did. Students are over a 500 deep to get student tickets for Thursday. A10 is effed we are coming in force. Initially thought someone said a 1000 was wrong. Confidence is high that we will have in excess of a 1000 students at the game when all is said and done.

The 90s Yankees jacket is $5 extra.

Agree except play the whole thing at the Palestra, or at least after the round 1 games a.k.a. pillow fights as you mention. It could be a packed house final seating 8,725. It has history, it's in a major metro, and it's not someone's home court. The empty cavern look of Barclay's shows what we all know - outside of A10 fans, nobody cares about the A10 tourney.

The Billiken men need to follow in the footsteps of the Billiken women and take this thing.

So like the women they would underperform during the regular season and back in with a tournament run.
I would certainly take it at this point. They certainly underperformed during the season, but ironically, they were pre-season picked to finish 2nd in the A-10, and that’s where they finished. That shows us how weak the A-10 was this year. I wonder where SIU-Edwardsville would have finished if they were in the A-10?
