Minnesota State women's basketball home opener vs. Buena Vista.
MSU is 0-1 after losing at No. 8 Central Missouri last weekend. This is the season-opener for D3 Buena Vista.
If the MSU band wasn't here, there would only be 20 fans here with 20 minutes before tip.
Looks like the crowd could grow to 100
5 min til tip. Interested to see new players Tyra Johnson, Brittany Scherber, Sammie Delzotto and Sidni Trotter. Should be plenty of playing time available for everyone tonight.
Fans starting to roll in, up to about 200. Might actually have some atmosphere.
Looks like Ashley Olson gets the start in place of Davis.
