Chicago: Islanders hit the floor

By Jerry Palm - March 15, 2007

Georgia Tech left to a raucous cheer from about 30 or so Tech fans who snuck in behind me while I was working on the preview.

Then, TAMU-CC took the floor to a rousing round of indifference and an audible "who?" Their practice unis are all black that with blue basketballs on the back and each players number on the ball. No school name, no nickname, just numbers.

While Paul Hewitt was really engaged with his group - even letting them have it once, TAMU-CC coach Ronnie Arrow is chatting up the media guys in the front row, including Jim Nantz and Billy Packer.

A couple of bus loads of kids have arrived, so already the crowd is bigger for the Islanders than it was for Tech.
