Mason Nation, including Father Peter Nassetta, director of the university’s Catholic Campus Ministry, is planning to turn out in full force at Mason’s inaugural Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Championship in New York City from March 12-16 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Many Mason fans already have scooped up tickets, and you can too at Mason2NYC.com or by calling 703-993-3270. The tourney takes place next week during Mason’s spring break.
“Going to New York City is going to be a blast!,” says Nassetta. “The team is right there in every game, even against the very best in the Atlantic 10. I imagine I am going to want to see quite a few of these A-10 games.”
