Shamrocks and leprechauns, moving your clocks forward, the first days of Spring, and oh yeah—BASKETBALL. That’s right, it’s March. And while for many people that means looking forward to St. Patrick’s Day or warm(er) weather, for some college-sports fans it means only one thing: March Madness. For the next three weeks, hoops aficionados will be glued to their TV and laptop screens, cheering on their favorite teams. However, every great team needs an equally great place to play. So in honor of March Madness, we bring you 10 slam-dunk basketball venues that have some serious game.
