Default NCAA Tournament in Greenville?

For those who live there or have been, what are your thoughts on how the NCAA Tournament has been in Greenville?

Pretty good and it definitely will have a positive economic impact. I don't know how much having USCe playing here has helped, but I think even without them people would be showing up to watch quality basketball.

I went to the practices and there were quite a lot of people there and everyone was hoping we would get more NCAA events. My sister and BiL went to the Friday sessions and said that besides "the well" having to get out the sander to fix a few spots on the court everything went really well.

The floor issue was on the NCAA. Its their floor. Shipped from their warehouses and they have a 3rd party vendor that maintains all of them.

Greenville has proven to be a great host. National press have been glowing about the downtown area and hospitality. Great to see it.

Not sure how fair it is to have the 7 seed practically playing home games. Think South Carolina being the 7 seed they should have been made to go out of state. Unfortunately being a Clemson Tiger fan I am not an expert on how the placing of teams happen in postseason play. Kind of sad. Anyways I hope Puke beats the living H-E-double hockey sticks out of the chickens. Having them move to the Sweet 16 would be unacceptable while THE school in this state always has been always will be Clemson, print that tweet that.....

Huge home court advantage for Scar. Even the Carolina fans stuck around to cheer for the chickens.

You're welcome. Hopefully in SC yalls state congress actually looks out for their people and their best interests, not their own personal agenda or campaign funding.

as a resident of greenville i can attest that the economic impact is very significant-downtown merchants especially are delighted with the business-nothing but a positive for greenville sc-having the greenville name written on the floor was great advertising
