Friday night at the University of Toledo, several teams are gathered practicing center ring for the Women's NCAA basketball tournament.
Not only is this important for the University of Toledo, but also the city.
The tournament will begin Saturday at 11:30 a.m. with a total of three games bringing in big name schools like Norte Dame and Vanderbilt.
As of Friday afternoon 5,000 tickets have been sold and many hotels are filling up for the weekend. Local restaurants will benefit as well, as many attendants will be dining nearby.
Tournament officials say this is excellent for the city especially since this is the first time this tournament has been hosted in the Glass City.
"We're going to be on ESPN tonight for some of these games. You know those who are surfing and looking at women games, they will probably see Salvage Arena. They will see some sights from the city. So it's a win-win for everybody," said Kelly Andrews, UT Athletic Director.
If you haven't purchased tickets yet they are still on sale. You can buy them at the Sullivan Athletic Complex.
