Sections 113, 114, 126, and 101 are located closer to the court behind the baskets. Not to mention, the prices are quite reasonable, considering today’s inflation crisis. Costs range from $83 to $125 per ticket. For a reminder, sections 106, 107, 109, 122, 120, and 118 are sold out for the No. 10 UNC Asheville vs. No. 2 UCLA matchup.

For a perfect sideview of the entire court, sections 120 and 107 were ideal. This is why it’s important to pay for the tickets as soon as possible. During March Madness, the seating can make all the difference for fans in any given game. The best sections available for Session 2 include 108, 121, and 119.
