March Madness 2019 in New York City

nycgo.com staff

(Updated 01/16/2019)

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.

This year, March Madness in New York City includes the Big East Tournament at MSG and the Atlantic 10 Tournament at Barclays Center. And, yes, the stately NIT once again holds its final two rounds in Manhattan. For more on the college basketball postseason in NYC, read on.
