Today’s March Madness
March Madness is one of the most exciting times of the year for basketball fans. College basketball teams from all over the country compete against each other during the winter to try and get invited to the March Madness tournament. The tournament begins in early March with sixty-four teams evenly split into four groups. Each group consists of sixteen teams which are ranked from one to sixteen. The first round has thirty-two games and the second has sixteen games. These first two rounds take place in four days. The third round has eight games and the fourth round has four games. These two rounds also only take four days. The fifth round has two games and the last two remaining teams verse each other for the National Championship. Basketball fans all across the United Sates fill out brackets trying to predict the winners of each round and game. It is very difficult and some websites offer a cash prize for a perfect bracket. March Madness gets better every year.
