South Bend honors teams in Sweet 16 Tournament


South Bend is home to the Sweet 16 Tournament this weekend.

It wanted to do something special for all four teams, playing: Notre Dame, Baylor, Kentucky and Oklahoma State. So, the city decided to rename a downtown intersection in their honor. We're referring to the Michigan Avenue and Washington Street intersection.

"Obviously, it's great whenever we can host these kinds of events, these sporting events that do bring people from literally all over the country to see their team - and in this case, our team - play," said South Bend Deputy Mayor, Mark Neal. "So, it's good for our community, restaurants, hotels, and I think also a chance for us to show what's going on in South Bend and all the good things happening here."

By the way, the street renaming is just temporary. It will be on display throughout the weekend.
