Basketball in Lucas Oil Stadium

As I watched the Final Four on CBS last evening, I thought, "How could you see anything as a spectator in that place?"

Bob Ryan of the Boston Globe writes this morning

So now [Duke] will be playing national darling Butler for the championship tomorrow night.

A matchup like this, taking place in this city, deserves to be played in a magnificent basketball atmosphere such as the Canseco Fieldhouse, rather than in this monstrosity, where patrons (and not just those in the upper reaches) are seated closer to the Illinois border than the court.
