Indianapolis tourism officials say Louisville, Michigan State and Duke basketball fans are driving up demand for hotel rooms and tickets to the NCAA men's regional basketball tournament.

Louisville plays Oregon and Duke plays Michigan State on Friday. The winners play Sunday for a berth in the Final Four.

Local ticket brokers tell the Indianapolis Business Journal that Duke was sparking interest not only from Duke alumni and supporters in North Carolina but also from Indianapolis and central Indiana.

Officials for the Hyatt Regency in downtown Indianapolis say reservation requests from the Louisville and East Lansing, Mich., spiked after the top-seeded Cardinals and Michigan State won their games last weekend.

A National Society of Black Engineers convention also is expected to draw more than 9,000 people to Indianapolis beginning Wednesday.
