The Lahaina Civic Center is comparable to playing in Newman’s gym. Or East High. Ten minutes before game time, it’s about 70 percent full.
WSU fans fill two sections behind the Shocker bench. I’m told around 300 made the trip. There are fewer UConn fans, still a good number. And Kentucky fans are here. In fact, the first two fans I saw at 8 a.m. (local) were wearing Wildcats gear.
