History will be made this weekend at Madison Square Garden.
Not only will New York's legendary basketball arena be hosting the NCAA tournament East Regional Final for the first time in 63 years, ticket prices will likely exceed those of any college game the Garden has ever hosted.
And that's not all. According to a Forbes report, tickets to the games on Friday and Sunday may be even more expensive than seats to the national semifinal contests next weekend in Dallas.
Data from TiqIQ suggests the average list price of a ticket for the East regional semifinal game is $747. That's 23 percent higher than the Final Four games in Dallas.
"In a tournament filled with the unexpected," Jesse Lawrence writes on Forbes, "this may be the biggest shocker of all."
The fact that UConn, a school that's campus is located close to New York City and has a large alumni base in town, is playing in one of the games only heightens the anticipation in a city that knows and loves basketball.
Huskies fans have witnessed their share of unforgettable moments at Madison Square Garden, from Ray Allen's championship-winning shot at the 1996 Big East tournament to Kemba Walker's step back game-winner over Pitt in 2011.
