Indiana coach Tom Crean anticipates great fan support for Friday's Sweet 16 contest against Kentucky at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
"We have a picture in our locker room from the Georgia Dome from when Indiana played the National Championship game and you can see a sea of red," Crean said Tuesday. "We would love to see that and it sounds like we're going to have a lot of fans there, a lot of people making plans to go.
"I hope the students aren't skipping school too early. I hope they wait, get their classes done and then get in. But, I think we'll have a great crowd. I know Kentucky's planning on a great crowd. Xavier's not that far away. I don't know how Baylor travels. The bottom line is it's a Sweet 16 game. Our fans have been outstanding being with us for so long, obviously for decades, but inside with this process, I really hope a lot of them will take the opportunity to go."
