KFC Yum! Center in the NCAA Spotlight

The KFC Yum! Center will be home to opening round games in the Midwest Region of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament beginning this Thursday.  This is the second time in the arena’s short existence that it will play host to the tournament.

The arena, which is arguably the nicest in the country, should be a focal point of the first weekend given it is the site where the undefeated and number one overall seeded Kentucky Wildcats will open action.

It’s easy to take such an event for granted when the arena already plays host to several marquee college basketball games throughout the season, but having millions of eyes from all across the country focused on your city, and the nicest asset your city has to offer, for an extra weekend toward the end of the season is a big deal.  Major basketball events in the city of Louisville are always something worth celebrating.
