I noticed the article didn;t mention the attendance. I suspect it was low. I quit watching NCAA basketball when they went to a 64 team tournament and adopted the conference tournaments at the same time, rendering the regualr season meaningless, unless you want to claim playing for seeding on a neutral court is meaningful. I am a very dumb person, and one of the smart people here has to explain to me how playing a 4 day tournament, where you only play 3 other teams out of a 12 team conference, determines a conference champion and the resulting automatic NCAA berth. But if over 2 months, you play each conference member on a home and away basis, that only determines seeding on a neutral court. I can't figure that out. NCAA basketball is a total farce, as is NFL football. But NCAA football is where it's at, that where you have to lay it on the line every single game. Every single game counts.
