COLUMBUS, OHIO -- While the team will be front and center on the court, there will be at least 200 Colgate fans in the stands rooting them on, but it doesn't compare to the showing Tennessee is likely to bring to the dance.

Raider's fans were able to catch a brief look at the team practice earlier Thursday morning, and are aware of the fan discrepancy.

The fans we did talk to didn't seem at all bothered about being outnumbered. The base was a lot different than when local product, Adonal Foyle, was playing there.

“We have maybe not that one superstar like we did at that time, but we have a great group, and the feeling is still the same. Just an amazing time to be a Raider fan,” said Lori Godshalk, Colgate Athletics Department staff

“They're going to need a lot of good three point shooting to be able to win. I caught the end of the Iowa practice and they've got a lot of players, and the band, and a mascot, and everyone here, and poor Colgate has 12 players and that's it so,” said Ed Babel, Colgate alum.

“As a small school we see that all the time. We try to fill as much as we can. We will be as loud as we can, and definitely we will be there to support them all the way,” said Karen Aguilar, the cheerleading captain.

“It's just incredible. You know the community is just so much behind these guys, and it is a different experience. You've got everything else going on around you. All these other teams. The different vibe that comes from an NCAA Tournament, so it's a lot of fun. It's a blast to be here,” said Jeff Bishop, color commentator with WKXZ Radio.

The team goes dancing at 2:45 p.m. Friday.
