College Basketball at Barclays Center

Since tickets for NBA games are so expensive we go to several college games every season.  At least once a year we see games at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.  Since there is no parking there we take the subway there.  This weekend there was a tournament with Nebraska, Tennessee, George Washington and Cincinnati.

As you can see in the photo above the attendance at this large arena was low.  These 4 schools have very good basketball programs, but have no connection to New York City.  I assume that the schools have relatively few alumni in the metropolitan area who would come to a game.

In the consolation game Nebraska beat Tennessee 82-71

In the championship game where the defenses dominated Cincinnati beat George Washington 61-56
