Ford Center packed Friday night for OVC tournament

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Over 7,000 fans packed the Ford Center on Friday night to watch the Ohio Valley Conference tournament.

This was by far the largest crowd anyone has ever seen for a basketball game at the Ford Center.

It was a great night for the local economy. Downtown businesses were booming, which is the reason why Evansville works so hard to keep the tournament at the Ford Center.
