(CBS Connecticut) — New York’s Empire State Building isn’t taking sides in the NCAA Basketball Final Four;  it’s taking all four sides!

The tower lights of the famed building will shine for the four teams still in the tournament, from sunset Saturday until 2:00 a.m. Sunday,  with one side of the building colored for each team.  The east side of the building will be blue/white/blue,  the University of Connecticut colors.

The other sides of the bulding tower will bear the colors of Florida (north  orange and blue,) Wisconsin (south, red and white)  and Kentucky (west, blue and white)

Saturday’s winners each will be given tower lights on two sides of the building,  and for the National Champion on Monday, a “celebratory sparkle lighting” for the winning team.
