Local hoop fans can make history tonight

The NCAA championship game tonight with Butler facing Duke could be one of the most historic in men's college basketball history.

If Butler is victorious, the Bulldogs will become the smallest school to win the Division I championship since the NCAA went to the expanded field of 64 teams in 1985. It has become the most heralded David vs Goliath title game matchup in college basketball history.

For those who want to be part of this nostalgia making night, but can’t afford the cost of a trip to Indianapolis, there is an alternative and a chance to make some local history of their own.

The Royal Palm 20 is showing the game live in 3-D and people can gain entrance for a $20 ticket, which will give them a chance to mingle with other fans in a pre-game area set aside for them will include food.

It’s the next best thing to being there and local patrons will have an opportunity to say they were part of the first audience in Bradenton to watch a live NCAA basketball championship game in 3-D, theater officials say.

The tip-off is scheduled for around 9:20 pm, but fans can start coming in around 8 pm where they can warm up their vocal chords and showcase their prognostication skills while getting some nourishment.
