A lot of work goes into getting the New Orleans Arena ready for the NCAA Tournament's first and second round games.

CBS sports crews tell us it takes two days prepare the arena for their broadcasts.

During each game, CBS uses seven cameras and a major sound system to make sure the folks watching on WKYT get just as good a seat as fans watching on the first row of the arena.

While UK fans are focused on the games, there are several things to see in New Orleans outside the arena.

Many fans are enjoying the sights of Jackson Square and the French Quarter.

They're also eating the famous beignets at Café du Monde.

You can watch the UK-East Tennessee State game Thursday at 7:15 p.m. on WKYT.
