EDISON, NJ (Jan. 19, 2023) – Single session tickets are now on sale for the 2023 Hercules Tires Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships at historic Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey from March 7-11.

Ticket prices for individual sessions range from $12 to $42 for a single session on the women’s side and $17 to $52 for a single session on the men’s side, while single session tickets for students are $8.

Don’t miss out on a chance to witness the MAAC tournament and see who earns the league’s automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament. Last season’s MAAC men’s tournament yielded one of March Madness’ most successful Cinderella stories ever, as the Saint Peter’s Peacocks strutted their way into NCAA history by becoming the first ever No. 15 seeded team and first ever MAAC program – men or women – to advance to the Elite Eight.

Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall has served as the host venue for the MAAC Basketball Championships for four consecutive years dating back to 2020. The five-day event will feature the league’s Men’s and Women’s Basketball championships, Esports Spring championships, and MAAC ancillary events such as the MAAC Bounce to Boardwalk Hall, MAAC Band Jam, MAAC ‘n Cheese Fest, Spirit Squad Showcase and MAAC Mascot Game.

On the men’s side, Siena College sits atop of the league standings with a 6-1 conference mark, while holding a 12-6 overall record. The Saints are 7-1 over their last seven games and have been near-perfect at home in MVP Arena, holding a 5-1 record in Albany with the only lost coming in overtime.

For the women, Iona University leads the pack, boasting a league-best 6-1 MAAC record and 11-5 overall mark. The Gaels are riding a five game winning streak and are a perfect 4-0 during the 2023 calendar year.

The 2022-23 campaign culminates with the 2023 Hercules Tires MAAC Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships from March 7-11 at Atlantic City's Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall for the fourth consecutive year.
