The best time of the year is finally here. With the release of the 2024 NCAA Tournament bracket, March Madness has officially begun.

USC earned a No. 1 seed in the Portland 3 region and with it a first-round date against No. 16 Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, at 4:30 p.m. EDT on Saturday, March 23.

All games in USC’s regional, including a Round of 64 game between No. 8 Kansas and No. 9 Michigan will be played at the Galen Center in Los Angeles.

Tickets to the two Round of 64 contests are still available for as little as $173.

A ticket acts as a Saturday pass, granting access to both the Round of 64 game between No. 8 Kansas vs. No. 9 Michigan, and the following game between No. 1 USC and No. 16 Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
