BRIDGEPORT - The City of Bridgeport today hosted the NCAA regional semi-finals and finals in women's basketball.

Besides prestige, city officials and merchants say the games bring business to the area. When fans aren't watching the game, they usually eat, and if they're visiting from out of town, they need a place to sleep.

The games also keep the employees at the Webster Bank Arena busy.
