St. Louis, MO –

This weekend is the last chance for Illinois, North Carolina, Louisville, and Michigan State men's basketball to shine.

It's also a chance for St. Louis to shine, as the sports world casts its eyes on the city during the Final Four.

There's been an effort in recent years to jump-start life in downtown St. Louis, and it will certainly bustle this weekend.

KWMU's Tom Weber prepared this report, looking at the long-term effect the Final Four will have on revitalizing the area.
