Memorial Coliseum will host the conclusion of NCAA Division III Men’s Basketball Championship, March 16 and 18. Trimmed from 64 teams to just four, the teams will arrive in town for the national semifinals and championship. 

On Thursday, March 16, semifinals begin at 5:30 p.m. with the second game starting 30 minutes following the conclusion of the first game. 

On Sautrday, March 18, the NABC All Star Game will be 12:30 p.m. with the national championship game at 4 p.m. 

This marks the third Division III title game at Memorial Coliseum, as the venue hosted it in 2019 and 2022 with COVID-19 canceling events at the arena in 2020 and 2021. The tournament will remain in Fort Wayne at least through 2026. 

According to Visit Fort Wayne, the tournament generates more than $650,000 in economic impact and shines the spotlight on the community and continues to sharpen and build a reputation as an attractive sports destination for other tournament planners.
