      Solid Blue fans may not be excited for the upcoming NCAA Tournament, but businesses around downtown Lexington are.

     Many businesses say they're expected a big boost over the weekend, when eight teams come to Lexington for the second and third round of the NCAA Men's College Basketball Tournament.

     There are some concerns by locals; there is the issue of increased traffic downtown and a potential lack of parking with two of the city's parking garages under renovations.

     Police say they're also going to keep a close eye on people scalping tickets for the games and selling other merchandise near Rupp Arena.

      The first game is Thursday at Noon at Rupp Arena.
