The production for this year’s tournament will reflect more of what our audience wants to see at tournament time. We plan to take everyone behind the curtain a little more,” says producer and reporter Tolly Carr.
“Basketball is certainly the star of the show but there’s a lot of people who contribute to putting on the show. The cheerleaders, band members, coaches, and advisors are just some of the folks who make this an unforgettable week for the fans,” Carr said.
