ATLANTA (AP) -- Spring weather arrived Saturday before Louisville and Wichita State tipped off the Final Four inside the Georgia Dome.

And some 100,000 fans descended on downtown Atlanta in the sunny, 70-degree weather-- an estimated 20,000 packed Olympic Centennial Park to enjoy the free festivities and about 70,000 inside the arena.
