Campus cops will be out in full force Friday for Marietta's NCAA tournament game.

A sold out crowd is expected for the Pioneers' game against Centre College of Kentucky.

Marietta College will host another NCAA game just before it's own.

The college sports agency has set some security requirements, but the Marietta Police Chief Tom Saccenti said he doesn't expect any problems.

"We don't expect any behavioral issues with our students at all," said Saccenti. "We saw it demonstrated to us in the last championship that we won that we had zero problems with our students."

The NCAA requires officers to be stationed near referees and monitor teams on and off the court.

Additional court side officers will be there for crowd control. Meanwhile, regular patrols of the campus will continue.

Marietta College will face off against Centre College at 8 p.m. Friday.
