HOLY FAMILY men's basketball coach R.C. Kehoe can't wait. Either, he said, can his team. On Friday, the Division II Tigers will take on Syracuse in an exhibition in the Carrier Dome. "Excited is an understatement," Kehoe said. "I don't know what the crowd will be like, but I'm expecting about 15,000. It's the largest on-campus arena in the country. " The Dome's capacity is listed at 49,250. Holy Family's Campus Center Gymnasium only seats 1,000. So, don't be surprised if Kehoe's team looks as wide-eyed as those Hickory High players did when they showed for the state championship game at Hinkle Fieldhouse.
