Countdown to tip-off

Villanova arrived at Ford Field shortly before halftime of the UConn-Michigan State game. the Wildcats held a shoot-around at Detroit Mercy University and spent the rest of the day relaxing at the team hotel before heading downtown.
There were more fans in Ford Field than for any Detroit Lions game last season.
It's a really weird setup. The people in the first 10 rows or so are actually looking up because the floor is on a 27-inch platform.
The coaches have a short stool, kind of like a bar stool, to sit on if they wish. Connecticut's Jim Calhoun did in the first half. Michigan State's Tom Izzo did not.
The players have to walk up three steps to report into the game.
It's strange, really strange.
Actually, it's a joke.
There is no way the people in the last rows or in the super boxes can see the game. It's just too far away.
