March Madness arrives in Columbus

The N-C-A-A basketball tournament comes to Columbus today, but most people still will have to watch it on television.

Games at Nationwide Arena sold out long before the schedule was announced. When regional teams Cincinnati and Kentucky were sent to the city, tickets became even tougher to find.

Restaurants and bars in Columbus' Arena District expect packed houses as well.

While the N-C-A-A men's tournament may be the biggest draw this weekend, it's not the only one. Ohio State's women's team plays West Virginia at Saint John's Arena tomorrow morning, and the girls high school tournament also is being played at Ohio State.
