Buffalo ready to host and show off at NCAA Tournament

“You want one single reason why the NCAA keeps coming back to Buffalo? It’s the hospitality and coordination.”  Said Ken Taylor, Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Associate Director of Basketball and Baseball, when asked why the NCAA  basketball tournament has come to town so frequently ( this year will be the fifth time since 2000).

This year, the city, Visit Buffalo Niagara, First Niagara Center, Buffalo Place Inc, and numerous restaurant owners have been coordinating months in advance in order make sure the anticipated 18,000 guests bringing an estimated $5.2 million to spend locally are well-accommodated.
