Question re. Pauley Renovation/b-ball TV Coverage

Over the last few weeks we've talked a lot about the excitment surrounding our football program and the trepidation and concerns surrounding our b-ball program and how those general moods/auras may effect recruiting.  Something that's always bugged me in terms of creating a sense of energy and excitement surrounding our b-ball squad is the fact that the TV cameras in Pauley face the alumni section as opposed to the student section.

I may be overestimating the value of an enthusiastic fan base but I can't help but think that recruits (and youngsters that may turn into recruits one day) might be more likely to gravitate toward a place where there is a visible, tangible sense of excitement in the stands.  Call me a heratic, but if I had been a stud ballplayer when I was in high school, I have to think that the lure of playing in front of the Cameron Crazies would have been pretty strong.

Check out this video for a side-by-side comparison of the kids over at Dook and the geriatric crowd that sits across from the kids over at Pauley.

So my question, at long last, has anyone seen or heard anything regarding a rearranging of the cameras or altered placement of the student section post-renovation?  I'm not asking that students surround the court the way they do at many schools but at least point a camera at 'em.
