The stadium is the site for the NCAA men's Division I Final Four and national championship on April 4 and 6.

The end zone set-up was for the US Bank Stadium Basketball Classic, which allowed for a capacity of 15,000 fans.

Attendance for Friday's games was 12, 357, while a total of 5,370 showed up for Saturday's games.

Here are the scores from all four games:

Friday:

St. Thomas 85, UW-River Falls 70

Minnesota 83, Oklahoma State 76

Saturday:

South Dakota State 82, Northern Iowa 50

Drake 95, North Dakota State 88

In April, the court will be smack-dab in the center of the football field and surrounded by seats, bringing the capacity for the Final Four past 60,000.
