It's like a football Saturday in East Lansing

DETROIT -- Connecticut could be up against the ultimate home-court advantage.

It's St. Patrick's Day green in here -- and LOUD. But more than that, the Huskies are playing a basketball game in front of a football crowd. The building is huge and stuffed with Michigan State fans and the atmosphere is decidedly football, with fans tailgating and walking down the street wearing green and white.

Meanwhile a pack of UConn fans is trying its hardest, but as the banners here point out, Michigan State's campus is 92 miles away. Connecticut's is 746.
