The South Regional of the NCAA Tournament is the only one being played in a football stadium. Is that the reason for such poor shooting in Houston?

''But it's something that you got to adjust to quickly if you want to succeed in this.'' The other regionals are being played at Staples Center, home to the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers, Quicken Loans Arena, where the Cleveland Cavaliers play and the Carrier Dome, home to Syracuse University basketball and football games.
AP sources: Texas fires coach Barnes after 17 years (Yahoo Sports)
Texas basketball coach Rick Barnes will be released after yet another quick exit from the postseason, people with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press on Saturday. The decision came after Texas athletic director Steve Patterson and Barnes met Saturday, according to the people who requested anonymity because the school wasn't expected to make a formal announcement before Sunday. The 60-year-old Barnes shaped Texas into a national basketball power with three Big 12 championships and 16 NCAA Tournament appearances in 17 years. Barnes also led Texas within one game of the Final Four in 2005 and 2008.
