Dan Gavitt, NCAA vice-president of men’s basketball championships, said standing-room-only tickets for students from the participating schools may be made available before Saturday’s games if the demand exists. Gavitt said Friday that some student tickets have been turned back to tournament officials. If those seats are sold and demand still exists after those tickets are gone, Gavitt said there is a supply of standing-room-only seats for students that will be tapped. As of Friday afternoon, NCAA officials were unsure if the SRO seats would be needed. The SRO seats will only be available to students, Gavitt said.
