One of the most exciting times in sports is just about here – the NCAA March Madness basketball tournament, and its hard road to the final four. This coming Sunday, St. Patrick’s Day (Happy St Patrick’s Day!), is “Selection Sunday,” when tournament teams will be announced, with play beginning Tuesday, March 19.
March Madness is the peak of the college basketball season. Teams work tirelessly for months to become one of 68 teams (including play-in games) that make the tournament.
This year has produced its fair share of ups and downs, as the number one ranked team in the country has been knocked off on a number of occasions – Duke, Indiana, and Syracuse to name a few. So it is inevitable we will see some major upsets over the next few weeks.
Like every year, sports fans around the country will be filling out their brackets, watching the games and, of course, hoping their alma mater or favorite team is one of the final four that make it to Atlanta.
Who do you think will win this year’s NCAA basketball tournament? Let us know, and good luck with your bracket!
