It was a normal Wednesday at Villanova University.

A few dozen high schoolers and their families were on campus for a tour.

The only difference now is that tour guide say along with questions about the school's academic programs, they're also getting questions about basketball.

Just to give you an idea of the influence a successful sports program can have on a school, Villanova officials say that they will routinely get a few hundred people signing up for campus tours on a given day.

But on the first scheduled tour day after Villanova beat Kansas in the semifinals, approximately 1,200 people showed up.
