The first ever Regional in Sioux Falls was a true hit on Friday night as ticket sales where second only to the Bridgeport, CT Regional where the #1 overall seeded University of Connecticut Huskies played.

South Carolina, Tennessee, Ohio State and Syracuse all acceded on the 605 for the chance to make it to the Elite 8 on the line.

The two that emerged were Syracuse in the upset win over South Carolina and Tennessee which is a perennial national power actually played the upset role as well, defeating the better seeded Ohio State Buckeyes.

So the scene shifts to Sunday in Sioux Falls where the Vols will face off against the Orange with the winner off to Indianapolis and the Final Four.

The reaction from the fans, coaches, players and media has been excellent and nationally people are paying attention to what has been a great start to hopefully future events as well.

Syracuse and Tennessee will face off on ESPN at 2:30 PM CT at the Denny Sanford Premier Center.
