New York City is the birthplace of major college basketball—the site of its first “big game” in Notre Dame vs. NYU, which was the second half of a 1934 doubleheader; its first major tournament, the NIT, which debuted in 1938; and the first NCAA Tournament in 1939.

The NCAA Tournament is back at its birthplace, Madison Square Garden, for this year’s East Regional semifinals and final. Meanwhile, the Atlantic Coast Conference will hold its tournament at Barclays Center for the first time. For more on these and other college basketball postseason highlights, read on.
