Bankers Life Fieldhouse, one of the country’s greatest basketball showplaces, will play a significant role in championship basketball once again, when it welcomes the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. A two-time host of the NCAA Women’s Final Four, the first- and second-round men’s games next March represent the first time that NCAA men’s tournament games will be played at the Fieldhouse.

The 2017 NCAA championship begins Tuesday and Wednesday nights, March 14-15, with the First Four — four preliminary-round games taking place in Dayton, Ohio. First- and second-round action takes place in Indianapolis and seven other sites, March 16-19. Regional sites are Kansas City, San Jose, Memphis and New York, for games played March 23-26.
