Lot of folks left to grab bite to eat or check into hotels, the next came back for 2nd half of H-Y and the 2nd women's game.

That would account for the discrepancies between what TV viewers saw and what people who say that they were there are describing.

It looked like great TV. Maybe the EPSN guys are used to placing the camera where there are fans.

The place was EMPTY for the second women's game. I was there.

H-Y seemed rather empty as well. 2,500 (at best) in an arena that seats 3.5X that felt very strange. The arena was empty compared to just 7 nights before - I was at both games. It's one thing to play in a vacuous MSG or Prudential Center, somewhat anticlimactic to play in the Palestra without even the attendance of a regular season game.

Friend, I believe you.

But if it makes you feel better, the H-Y game didn't come across as "empty" on television.

Going to tune in soon for the championship.

There's nobody there.

Who compiled an all-time All-Ivy First Team that had Jeremy Lin on it? Bradley, McMillian, Allen, Maloney, and ... Lin?

Princeton and Penn alone have a good 6-7 guys each who were better Ivy players than Lin in their careers. Even Harvard in its decrepit basketball history prior to the last ten years had at least a couple.

I was thinking the same thing.

I assume it was ESPN who had the security guards waving to us in the upper level to move down to the chair backs lower level early in the women's final and that's why the place looked more filled on TV than it was & looked inside the Palestra.

Always a small victory when you buy rafter seats for a game, and the guards tell you to move down to the lower bowl so it looks better for television.

That's happened to me twice at NBA games.

Back in the early 1980s in the old Chicago Stadium we were at the season finale for the non-playoff bound Bulls. We were way up in the balcony and the guards had us come down--we had front row seats on the baseline. Later got an autograph from a sweat-drenched Herb Williams (then a Pacer) as he was leaving the court.
