Join the Rider University men's and women's basketball teams as they compete in the 2012 MAAC Basketball Championship in Springfield, Massachusetts for a bid to the NCAA Tournament.
This year's championships will be showcased March 1-5 at the Mass Mutual Center and ticket's for Rider's opening games (women's first round, men's quarterfinals) are on sale now for $30 through the Rider Department of Athletics. Tickets for each game as the Broncs advance through the tournament will also be available through Rider. The complete men's and women's tournament brackets can be found in the links to this story.
The Rider women open against Iona at noon on Thursday and the Bronc men face Fairfield at 2:30pm on Saturday.
Unfortunately, Rider Athletics does not have rooms reserved in a fan block so any fans traveling to the tournament should make their own hotel reservations.
