Dayton, OH -- March madness has arrived! The field of 68 is set, and all those teams are on the road to the national championship. Five of those 68 teams are from North Carolina. You have second seed Duke, eight seeds UNC and NC State, 14 seed Davidson, and of course, 16 seed North Carolina A&T State University. For the Aggies, it's their first time in the big dance since 1995.
WFMY News 2's Philip Jones got in the news car this afternoon and hit the road to Dayton, Ohio to follow Aggies. He arrived earlier this evening, and has a look inside the University of Dayton Arena ahead Tuesday's big game.
Jones said, "The Aggies didn't exactly get a warm welcome when they got to Dayton -- but then again, no one did. It is cold, and it is windy here in Ohio."
The team left Greensboro around 6:30 am and got to Dayton for a practice at about four o'clock in the afternoon.
We know there is a lot of Aggie pride in Dayton, as we've already seen some of it on Twitter. We're looking to see some of it here in Dayton to share on our newscasts all throughout the day on Tuesday. Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org if you, or anybody you know, is in Dayton. Tweet Philip @philgoodstory if you know of anyone in Dayton. Or leave a message on our facebook page to let us know.
The Aggies take on Liberty at 6:40pm Tuesday, and it can be seen on truTV.
