Battle for a 16 Seed Commences in Connecticut

I took a family outing to Fairfield, CT today to watch the Sacred Heart Pioneers take on the Wagner Seahawks in a battle of Northeast Conference foes.  The game went into overtime where Wagner would eventually defeat SHU 73-68.

As the picture indicates, plenty of good seats were still available at tipoff, which is too bad because the basketball was entertaining and the setting quite intimate.  I would have expected a much larger crowd for a Saturday afternoon.  Maybe everyone was watching college football on television or out buying a Christmas tree. Either way, people are missing out on a good time. Share your views.
