2008 NCAA® MEN’S FINAL FOUR®
Thank You San Antonio!
weather, great events and great people made the 2008 NCAA Men's Final Four in San Antonio a huge
success! "People just had a lot of fun," said Tom
O'Connor, chairman of the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Committee that
organizes the event. O' Connor gave "an A+ with a gold star" when asked to
grade San Antonio
as a Final Four host.
Jenny Carnes, executive director of the San Antonio Local
Organizing Committee, said "the stars aligned for San Antonio Final Four
weekend" with an historic field of four number one seeds, an overtime
Championship game, perfect weather and a supportive local community helping set
ancillary attendance records.
The NCAA saw record numbers at NCAA Hoop City refreshed by Coca-Cola, over
167,000 at the Big Dance and thousands more college basketball fans at other
events offered to the public during Final Four weekend.
The San Antonio Local Organizing Committee would
like to thank everyone who participated in the 2008 Final Four experience.
The San Antonio community looks forward to hosting the 2010
NCAA Women's Final Four and the opportunity to host future NCAA Championships
in the Alamo City.
