San Jose is hosting several NCAA Tournament games this week at HP Pavilion -- and local officials hope the tournament will provide an economic boost to the South Bay. Bay Area basketball fans have a lot to cheer about on the court, with Cal's men's and women's teams both participating, along with the top-seeded Stanford women. In a special broadcast from KQED Silicon Valley, we talk about the tournament and discuss the state of college hoops.

Host: Dave Iverson
