While the NBA season has the razzle-dazzle and the overall showmanship with unbelievable athletes, college basketball maintains the team game with excitement and unpredictability. The fact of the matter is that many of these athletes are still teenagers, and therefore demonstrate a lot of the growing pains we all feel during moments of our lives on the court. Watching a truly great game of college basketball is almost unparalleled compared to other sporting events because of this distinct factor.
College basketball also offers one of the best sporting spectacles in the world, March Madness. We believe it’s important to have a taste of home, especially if you happen to be a student studying abroad in Barcelona.

During the month of March and into April, we also make sure to put on as many March Madness games as possible. It’s the apex of college basketball competition. We would not miss it for the world.
In 2018, for the first time, we saw a 16-seed knock out a 1-seed. We won’t rub salt on the wound, Virginia, but seriously, Virginia, what the heck happened? Okay, we won’t bring it up again. It’s not like it was the first time it ever happened in the history of the competition.
Aside from that moment, there are constant buzzer-beaters and games leaving you on the edge of your seat till the final countdown. Even the NBA players and basketball veterans stop to watch the games, as there is a special vibe to the whole tournament that is second-to-none.
Whether it is during the regular college basketball season, or during March Madness, we’ll be sure to have the games on and the beers flowing. If there’s a particular game you’d like to watch, contact us, and we’ll do our best to make you feel at home.
