The girls state basketball tournament kicked off today.

Lincoln is filled with fans. Fans of all ages gathered at the Pinnacle Bank Arena to watch Waverly and Gretna high school basketball teams go head and head with each other.

Dressed in their best gear to support their team.

People watched anxiously while others helped themselves to ice cream and pop corn.

And then there were fans who predicted the winning team before the buzzer.

They also believed most teams can win if they focus on one thing, which is defense.

Tomorrow is round two of the tournament with the championships being played on Saturday
