Barclays Center Classic Information

The Barclays Center Classic is right around the corner and we are very excited to see everyone in Brooklyn for what should be an entertaining game. Tickets to the Barclays Center Classic provide admission to both games of the tournament; LIU Brooklyn vs. Morehead State at 5:45 p.m. and Maryland vs. Kentucky at 8:30 p.m.

Tickets for the Barclays Center Classic were distributed to each participating school in a limited grouping of sections. Due to a high demand, Maryland requested additional tickets to service the needs of our season ticket holders and Terrapin Club members. After all the requests were compiled, all tickets were allocated in Terpoint priority, consistent with Terrapin Club policy.

Thank you again for your support of Maryland Basketball. We look forward to seeing you in Brooklyn! Below you will find a transportation guide to the arena for your convenience.
