COLUMBUS, OHIO -- Colgate men’s basketball team takes the court Friday in the NCAA tournament.

While Alicia Daddario is still recovering from laryngitis, NewsChannel 2’s Kirk Tupaj went out to see why the NCAA tournament is the hottest game in town.

The atmosphere in Columbus, Ohio is electric. You can feel the excitement of what's about to take place in the Nationwide Arena, and that energy is starting to become apparent all along North High Street.

Bars and restaurants are buzzing with the sounds of basketball.

The NCAA tournament has basketball fans checking their brackets and downing drinks. It's not hard to get into the spirit since just about every business in town is tuning in to the big dance.

There's about 20,000 seats in the Arena, and while being courtside may be the best place to feel the energy of the game, these fans seem pretty content to the best seats in the brew house.

The Colgate Raiders take on the Tennessee Volunteers Friday at 2:45 p.m.
