Palace of Auburn Hills Ready for NCAA Tournament Action


The Michigan State Spartans and Michigan Wolverines survived a grueling regular season and Big Ten conference season and have been rewarded for their efforts with the ability to stay close at home for the NCAA tournament’s early rounds.

Gone is the normal red, white and blue court of the Detroit Pistons with the standard NCAA painted court installed in its place.

AP sportswriter Larry Lage tweeted out the following photo of the NCAA court installed at the Palace:
