— Greensboro and New Orleans are the places to be for Carolina and Duke fans this week. The first round of theNCAA tournamentkicks off Thursday, and tickets are still available.

TheNorth Carolina Tar Heelsare heading down to the Superdome in New Orleans. There are still plenty of tickets available for Friday night's match-up against Princeton.

TheDuke Blue Devilsare playing just down the road at the Greensboro Coliseum. There are about 2,000 upper level tickets left for Thursday night's game against Monmouth.

"I think our membership is used to the notion that the tickets are pretty hard to come by, so they haven't been beating down the door trying to get a ticket because they know it's a tight ticket to purchase for the first- and second-round games," says Jack Winters, director of the Iron Dukes.

Tickets cost $105 per session on Ticketmaster'sWeb site. Single-game tickets go on sale Thursday.
