March Madness

Final Four logoSixty-four teams enter, one team leaves. It’s called March Madness and it starts Thursday, March 18. The top 4 seeds are Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse, and Duke. The usual suspects, sure, but guess who’s not there: UConn and North Carolina! What? Can we have an NCAA Tournament without those two teams? That’s the beauty of March Madness. Winthrop plays Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Tuesday night to determine who will compete against Duke in the first round. What if one of these two teams is crowned national champion? Anything can happen in the tournament and often does. If you saw the SEC Championship game on Sunday, you know exactly what I mean. Mississippi State gave Kentucky all they could handle and didn’t get selected to play in the NCAA Tournament. Kentucky only won by one point in overtime. The same thing could happen again, but Kentucky may lose this time. That’s why I love March Madness. Check out the Basketball subject guide to find books, websites, and other information about the Tournament.
