Boise State men's basketball season ticket holders will have first priority to purchase tickets to the 2018 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament First and Second Rounds to be played at Taco Bell Arena, March 15 and 17, 2018.
As a reward to the most engaged Bronco basketball supporters, season ticket holders for both the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons will have priority over the general public to purchase tickets to the NCAA Tournament. This assures loyal Boise State basketball fans will be able to enjoy NCAA Tournament action in Boise.
Season ticket holders are encouraged to renew by June 15, and those interested in purchasing new season tickets can contact the Boise State Athletic Ticket Office at 208-426-4737 or by visiting broncosports.com/tickets.
March Madness Back in Boise
The return of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament to Taco Bell Arena in 2018 will mark the ninth time Boise State has hosted the tournament. Taco Bell Arena last served as a host site in 2009. The venue also hosted men's tournament games in 1983, 1989, 1992, 1998, 2001 and 2005.
Some of the tournament's most memorable games have taken place in Boise. In 2001, 15th-seeded Hampton defeated Iowa State in the first round on a day where four games in Taco Bell Arena were decided by a combined seven points. Tyus Edney's coast-to-coast buzzer-beater to lift UCLA over Missouri in 1995 also happened in Boise before the Bruins went on to win the national championship that year.
