This is special.
I have never seen an arena of this size filled to the brim for a women's college basketball game. Fans from not just the four semifinalists are here. There is a buzz that makes the game special.
But just a guess -- the majority of the fans are anti-UConn because no one wants to face the Huskies, least of all Tennessee should it advance to Tuesday's championship.
Also, a pair of nice touches: Every championship team has a banner hanging above the arena and all 64 teams from this year's tournament has its logo displayed around the arena.
I also like the video montage promoting UConn was set to "The Pretender" by my favorite band, the Foo Fighters.
