ATLANTA (AP) -- Drury and Metro State fans received a little extra motivation to pump up the volume at their Division II national championship game Sunday at Philips Arena.
In addition to free admission to the game, it was announced during the contest that two tickets to Monday night's Louisville-Michigan matchup would be awarded to the loudest fans. That news brought a few extra cheers.
It could mean an extra day in Atlanta for a couple of lucky fans instead of heading back to Drury in Springfield, Mo., or Metro State in Denver on Monday.
Drury had the definite advantage in the stands, with several sections of fans wearing the Panthers' red.
