- We expect to be in the team locker room at the Carmelo Anthony Basketball Center. You'll see the first reactions of coach Jim Boeheim and players.
- I'll post a snapshot of SU's first round opponent here as soon as I can.
- Ticket information will be on SUathletics.com tonight. Short version: the school gets precious few tickets, about 350. Around 10% of those are set aside for students, the rest will be up for grabs staring first with Orange Club donors at a level of at least $5,000.
- You can expect the tipoff time of SU's first game to be released late tonight or early tomorrow. CBS and Turner can't make those calls until the brackets are set.
- We'll be trying our first Google Hangout at noon Monday. I'll field your questions and comments about the tournament. More information is available on the SUathletics.com Orange Nation page.
- Assuming, the Orange start in Pittsburgh (or any other Thursday/Saturday site), there will be a practice open to the public at the game arena. Syracuse is among the most fun teams to watch in this scenario as they have put on a show for their may fans and have a more serious practice elsewhere.
- Matt Roe and I will cover the open practice and press conferences and file a preview on Orange All Access.
- Our usual gameday coverage will include the radio pregame at least 90 minutes prior to tipoff and a postgame call-in show on ESPN Radio 97.7 and TK99 in Syracuse and many other great stations throughout the state (Buffalo, Rochester, Albany, New York).
- I'll be Tweeting as news and thoughts come up @MattPark1.
