Sweet 16 starts up tonight
The Sweet 16 games start up tonight for the NCAA Men's Basketball teams still lucky enough to be playing, and today at the Maravich Center fans will have a chance to see the court that these teams are hoping to play on in the National Championship game. The NCAA Final Four court is on a seven-city tour and will be on display in Baton Rouge on Thursday. The truck with the court and a mini-court that will feature interactive activities will be set up between the south ramps of the Pete Maravich Assembly Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday. The court was crafted especially for the 2012 Men's Final Four. It was constructed of northern hardwood maple in strict accordance with NCAA specifications.
