I think we can all agree that the NC$$ has the ticket prices for the tournament at a price point that keeps many casual and non-participating team fanatic from attending the event.
It would cost me $58 to go see a regional final game and watch two teams that I am not a fan of. It the tickets were less than $30 I would certainly have gone. It's a shame that the NC$$ has their head in the sand and doesn't realize that by lowering ticket prices and/or having tickets at different price points, that they could increase revenue, have more people at the event which would look better on tv and increase the atmosphere, would increase concession sales as well as merchandise sales.
At what price point would you go to the regionals? For me the ideal price would be $20-$28 and I would be willing to sit in the second level.
