Final Four: Open Practices/Pressers/Dome Loitering

By David Scott - March 30, 2007

ATLANTA - Welcome back to the Georgia Dome for today's open practice session which begins in just a few minutes with Georgetown taking the floor first (followed by UCLA at 1 p.m. (EST), Ohio State (2:10 p.m.) and Florida (3:10 p.m.). Each squad gets 50 minutes of floor time and also has interview responsibilities that strecth for 30 minutes either before or after the team's court time.

. . .Members of the NCAA selection committee have been on the floor and on one of the team benches mingling and doing important things like looking at the quality of the hardwood (where the dominate color schemes are green and black with the Atlanta Final Four logo at midcourt and two red white and blue ribbons).

. . . A good crowd is already on hand as the lower sections of each sideline are mostly filled in (where seats aren't otherwise designated as reserved). The lower endzones also have a good amount of folks and there appears to be several area school groups.

. . . John Thompson Jr, the proud papa, just entered the courtside area. He walks with a pronounced limp and his arrival was chronicled by more than a few videographers.

Soon after he settled into his seat, an introduction video for the Hoyas, narrated by Jim Nantz, began playing on the video boards.

. . . The Hoyas are about to take the floor and Final Four weekend is officially underway.
