SMALLER STAGE: In New Orleans, Nakia Hogan noted members of the organizing committee for this week's NCAA Tournament Southeast Regional games at New Orleans Arena are "stopping short of calling the event a dress rehearsal for next year's Final Four" at the Superdome. While "operationally both events take a similar approach, the organizing committee said much more overall planning will take place for the Final Four."
