College basketball fans interested in attending the East Regional semifinals and final at Madison Square Garden might find some (relative) bargains on the resale market., which tracks a number of secondary market sites, said that as of Wednesday morning, more than 7,000 tickets were available for the March 24 and 26 games, with the lowest price listed at $133.

That is the second-cheapest of the four regional sites that weekend, and $19 less than the figure for the 2014 regional games at the Garden.

The current asking prices could rise or fall significantly based on which teams reach the regional semifinals. The top two seeds — Villanova and Duke — figure to be powerful draws if they survive the first two rounds.

According to TicketIQ, asking prices for the Garden regional are roughly on par with high-demand regular-season games for the Knicks and Rangers.

Tickets for the NIT semifinals at the Garden on March 28 can be had for as low as $24, and as low as $18 for the March 30 final.
