KWWL crew heads out for Oklahoma City

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Many Panther fans are already on their way to Oklahoma City to follow the UNI Men's Basketball team.  The team flew out from Waterloo Tuesday morning.

KWWL Sports Director Rick Coleman and Photojournalist Matt Haupert left Tuesday afternoon from the KWWL studios in Waterloo.  Their 650 mile trip was expected to take roughly ten hours.  They took our satellite truck and are gearing up to bring eastern Iowa live coverage of highlights and all the action from the NCAA Tournament.

"Looked well all season long and I don't know about their nine seed, but hey, who knows, upsets have happened before, so we'll see what happens. See you in Oklahoma City," Matt Haupert said.

Watch for Rick's reports starting Wednesday night.  The Panthers take on UNLV Thursday at 6:10 p.m.
