Not quite gametime....about 15 minutes away. The arena is considerably more filled than it was during the earlier session today. The Kansas State-UT-Chattanooga game and Miami-Louisville games saw maybe 1,000 fans. Now? Try 8,000 or so. The makings for a great tournament game environment is in place.
Both schools' bands sound good so far, too.
UConn was just out on the court and looked relaxed. Cornell, on the other hand, looks tense as if it knows what's to come.
