    just wanted to get some thoughts from the people who have been to a few games now. What do you think of the new videoboards, ribbon boards and new baskets? The practice facility looks pretty sweet from the construction cam.

    love the new upgrades but they need to do something different than just ads with the ribbon boards. Score tickers, that sort of thing. I never look at them up there because they never give info, just ads.

    The atmosphere inside the arena is much better than last year. This was money well spent.

    It looked like we've picked up some additional sponsors, too.

    Agreed some other game stats scrolling through like, turn-overs, rebounds, assists, as well as scores from around the country would be nice.

    Get rid of the flyaway hoops. They block the scoreboard where I sit. Other than that I like the upgrades.

    I have the same problem from where I am BUT it's a fair trade to get to see what's going on underneath the basket, which I couldn't see before because the base of the hoop was in the way. I think it was a good decision to improve the sightlines on the ends.

    I don't think they use the video boards right yet. Mostly they just show the game that is going on right in front of everyone. They need to do some funny stuff, more player interviews, previous game highlights and better jobs on the replay during breaks in the action.

    Sweet...I didn't think of that. I'll have to go to the CEC sooner than later and see for myself.
