Kansas coach Bill Self described the atmosphere in Ford Field as indifferent, but he was talking about Friday, not today.
When the Jayhawks run onto the court there is serious noise. And when, a few minutes later, Davidson enters, the crowd is even louder. There is a quality to the Davidson greeting that you have to hear, and we all have at some point, to understand. There is an edge to it – hopeful, anticipatory and utterly alive.
When Stephen Curry is introduced, the noise is even louder.
But only Max Paulhus Gosselin has his own cheering section. Fans hold a sign with each of the 18 letters in his name.
The game is 4:11 old and the score is 2-2. Baskets are few, but the tension is enormous.
