Indianapolis – “Sports Town USA”

For decades, Indianapolis has been known as the amateur sports capital of the world.  This weekend the city gets to showcase once again why it has been honored with that distinction.  While the local Butler University Men’s Basketball team will be competing in Houston in the Final Four, the NCAA Women’s Division I Basketball Championship will be played here at Conseco Fieldhouse. Conseco is shrine to basketball and a beautiful facility to watch a game or take in a concert.  This year’s Women’s Final Four features UConn vs. Notre Dame and Stanford vs. Texas A&M.  You can see the road each of these teams took through the field of 64 by clicking on the bracket here.

There is nothing like basketball in the state of Indiana – surely you’ve seen Hoosiers, just ask Gene Hackman!  Notre Dame certainly brings a hometown flare to the championship, but so does UConn.  The Huskies’ sophomore starting guard, #34 Kelly Faris is a graduate of Heritage Christian here in Indianapolis and led the Eagles to four consecutive state champions.  So they’ll be some split loyalty in the crowd I’m sure, but either way it’s going to be a great weekend of basketball and another winning weekend for the city of Indianapolis.
