BUFFALO, N.Y. — March Madness is coming back to Buffalo.

The second and third round of the NCAA men's basketball tournament will be played at the First Niagara Center in March 2014.

It's the fifth time the Queen City will welcome the tournament into town.

The last time was in 2010, when nearly 60,000 college basketball fans packed the then HSBC Arena to watch teams like Florida State, Syracuse and Vermont.

Officials estimated that those games brought in $5 million to local businesses.
