Heck, the Elma Roane Fieldhouse has a capacity of 2,565.

yes, but it has multiple courts and lockers rooms so we can do the 'NBA buble' thing.

upper level:

the Field House can't do all that...

9 courts with enough seating for 1 fan per court.

And that is a very fair point.
How many states have hit the headlines as the "latest hotspots"?
States adjust behaviors. This thing moves on.
Very unlikely that SD is still a hotspot by the time this tourney hits.

Well, it's being played in an ACTUAL basketball arena ... in a city where there are few opportunities to get in trouble. To bad Mike Miller isn't with us anymore, he could show us all the bars. Oh ... by the way ... all of the Tourist stuff (Mt. Rushmore, Badlands, Black Hills, etc) is 350 miles to the west !!!

How many would go from here...? Let's have a tentative count.

Approx driving time from Memphis is 12 hours and 32 mins

We all know the playbook by heart. We NEVER hear about impending doom in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, Rhode Island, Wisconsin or DC. We DO hear about impending doom in Oklahoma, Mississippi, South Dakota, and Alabama.

At one point, 100 irresponsible apparent Trump lovers at a party in Kentucky were going to cause everyone to die in that state. That got more play than Cuomo, New Jersey and Pennsylvania putting 20,000 infected seniors back into nursing homes.

I wonder why.

Facts aren’t allowed here. Once too much truth shows up in a post, there’s a liberal mod roaming around that will move it to the politics/religious forum.

You’ve probably underestimated that number. Either way, it doesn’t appear Stammers needs much help.

It's fun arguing with you. I like when you start out by saying that businesses owned by Trump supporters, Trump supporters from out of town and local Trump supporters are going to spread the virus and get everyone killed, and that you get super duper secret information from the police and hospitals. Then looking at the stats, if your county was a state, it would rank dead last in mortality from covid.

Knowing that your only reference on global and national issues is Rachel Maddow, adds to the fun.

I enjoy a good laugh as much as the next guy.

Duke pulled out ... Will probably host their own tourney. If anyone needs a definition of a Blue Blood !!
And Utah is a ?? due to Pac12 concerns, so this tournament could end up being cancelled. They are supposed to be looking for a Duke replacement ... On hold for now.

if it's a bubble the only folks there will be teams/coaches/support staff/media/NBA scouts. The courts have seating and a viewing area for scouts/media plus the main court which seats ~3000

Ike is seeing politics all over the sports world, He doesn't like it, He could care less what sports commentators
Think unless someone can rebut them in a different venue. Yrs ago Roger Staubach made a political statement
While broadcasting, Ike doesn't believe he returned the following yr.
Ike has a hard time hearing Dudes comment on sporting events they never played but, please leave your political thoughts for the political shows.
Maybe some of u Dudes will get invited on the view

Amen, brother!!!

People tune in to watch sports to get away from politics and everyday issues. Not to be forced to sit and hear their political views or be insulted by athletes protesting about something that is propaganda.

That is exactly why the NBA and NFL ratings are plummeting.

People are fed up with it.

JUST PLAY BALL!

Btw I went to a Memphis-Wichita game in Sioux Falls a few years back. That arena is really cramped, plus we were blown out, and it was full of Wichita fans.

A lot of these guys don't know anything about the Midwest. South Dakota, and Sioux Falls specifically are beautiful, tough winters by anyone else's standard of course, but the amount of things to do in the cold around here far outweigh the negatives if you listen to the natives.

It most certainly is not the Bahamas, but it is Tigers basketball, and at best attendance would have been sparse either way.

For me, I moved here (Twin Cities) in March, 4 hrs from me as well.

I have heard some great things about Mason City since being here, too. Must be a pretty place to live.
