I am always looking for good value (read, "free" ) things to do, and I have to tell ya, being forced to pay $260 or whatever for 6 tickets to mostly lousy mismatch games is not my idea of good value, especially when you might only be interested in seeing one of those games.

On the other hand, strolling into TWC Arena to check out UNC or Duke practicing could be a lot of fun. Nice of NCAA to do this, because I seriously doubt the coaches would choose to have their practices open to the public. I am going to be uptown anyway on Thursday and will stop in for a look.

Practice schedule:

oh, I will probably be wearing my Michigan cap... (because I have one)

Hi there XcapefromNJ... Now how were you able to procure 4 tickets for that price? My husband and I paid $400+ for Friday's afternoon session... I thought that was a bit steep and was wondering if there was a cheaper way to get decent seats on the lower level for the next round... Any info you provide would be greatly appreciated!

I hope you got good seats. It was only $239 for all 3 sessions and there were still tickets available this morning.

Only game I care about is UGA and Washington. I'm a big Dawg fan. Georgia Dawg.

I was only guesstimating at a price. I did not buy any tickets for the actual games. I did enjoy attending the UNC practice very much, and the price was right! Nice little story about it in the paper this morning. It was fun just being able to roam around TWC arena. The UNC team got a real warm welcome from the crowd - especially the young kids. It wasn't terribly exciting watching them do 10 minutes of stretching exercises, but there was lots of crowd pleasing dunking during the drills. It was a very relaxed practice.

I stopped by to watch Duke practice during lunch. It was nice of them to open practices like that
