The tip is still 30 minutes away, but there has already been a lot taking place inside Memorial Gym. Here are a few tidbits.
• By 3:30, the student section appeared to be completely full.
• 65 minutes before tip, former Vanderbilt great Shan Foster is announced to the crowd over the public address system. He makes his way through the adorning student section shaking hands and signing a few autographs.
• A little under one hour before tip, Dick Vitale's first appearance draws a roar from the student section. Like Foster, Vitale makes his way down the student section, while shaking hands.
