PMI chief: Early reviews favorable for host city

Mar. 14, 2013
 

It's still early in the girls state basketball tournament after a pair of games have been played, but PMI Entertainment Group chief operating officer Ken Wachter had a smile on his face late this afternoon.

If the early session was any indication, it's possible the WIAA will decide to bring the tournament to the Resch Center on a permanent basis.

"I think everything weíre doing is real positive, so thatís all we can do is put our best foot forward and hope that the decision is made to stay here," said Wachter.

The crowd noise, even for the less populated Division 5 games, was noticeable. That's because the Resch Center offers a smaller, more intimate setting than the cavernous Kohl Center in Madison.

"It looks better here than it would in an 18,000 seat venue," said Wachter, "and watching it on TV, it looks great on TV. So I think itís creating a good atmosphere."

Wachter said he heard only one complaint all day, and that was from a woman who lives in the Madison area and didn't want to drive so far.
