Meadowlands: Welcome Back to 1982

By David Scott - March 25, 2007

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - We're back at the Continental Airlines Arena for the regional final between No. 1 seed North Carolina and No. 2 seed Goergetown which tips at 5:05. We've settled into the Hang Time perch a bit early so we can follow along with the Florida-Orgeon game on the monitors positioned to our far left and far right.

Fans are lined up outside at the gates and will be allowed in the building in about 15 minutes according to our friendly neighborhood usher, Jackie E. There was also some tailgating commencing when the media shuttle dropped us off.

. . . There's a scorer's table seat reserved for NCAA selection committee chairman Gary Walters, who will be in his fourth region in four days. Impressive travel schedule, that, as he worked his way eastward from San Jose on Thursday.

. . . We're also expecting John Thompson III's dad, John Thompson to be in the building, as he calls the gamne on thhe national radio feed. No word on whether Michael Jordan will be here. Jeremiah Rivers' dad, Doc - who was unable to attend the Friday night game because his Celtics were playing - is also expected to be in attendance.

. . . Georgetown game notes are here.

North Carolina game notes are here.
