SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Set up for the NCAA Tournament has begun at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo.
Crews put the hardwood down Tuesday.
Teams will be practicing on the court Wednesday afternoon; Syracuse will take the floor at 2:15.
All of the practices Wednesday are open to the public.
SU fans in Buffalo are excited for the tournament, but are worried about how the Orange have played recently.
"Last year they went through a slump at the end of the regular season, so hopefully they can bounce back again like they did last year. It's been a rollercoaster but as a Syracuse fan you kind of get used to that," said Chris Muldoon, SU fan.
"I think at the beginning of the season we did really well and I think, I don't know, we're losing our energy," said Kate Sciortino, SU fan.
"A lot of the games we've won, we've barely won, so it's kind of been a crazy year," said Melina Buck, SU fan.
The Orange will also have a news conference Wednesday afternoon around 1:35, we'll carry it live here on Time Warner Cable News.
