CHARLOTTE, NC — Charlotte Mayor Dan Clodfelter is welcoming NCAA fans to the Queen City and says the 'hometown' team, Davidson College, will come out on top.
 
Clodfelter made his selections late Monday, picking his alma mater, not only as a Cinderella team of the 2015 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball tournament, but also as the winner of the big dance.
 
"I have to support the hometown team," said Clodfelter. "We're excited to welcome the thousands of basketball fans who will come to Charlotte for the games later this week."
 
Games at Time Warner Cable Arena will commence Thursday at 12:40 pm with a match-up between Michigan State and Georgia. The full list of NCAA games in Charlotte is available at http://www.ncaa.com/
