Published March 29, 1995
The Meadowlands, which will host the Final Four in '96, "figures to be the last 'small' facility to host the men's event in the foreseeable future," according to Michael Dobie of N.Y. NEWSDAY. In the piece, Dobie notes the many "pros" and "cons" of holding the event at the Meadowlands. Among the pros, "Boon for hotels, limos, stores and restaurants," and the "Media capital of the world." Michael Rowe, Exec VP & GM of Meadowlands Arena and Giants Stadium: "We've been told things are going terrific. We meet with the [NCAA Tournament] committee every day. I don't think anybody has any concern" (N.Y. NEWSDAY, 3/28).
