One of the greatest sporting events in history starts this Sunday, and if you’re a fan of college basketball, like I am, you’re probably getting excited. It’s time for March Madness, baby! March Madness is a crazy-fun basketball tournament that involves 68 teams and 67 fast-paced, heart-racing, edge-of-your seat basketball games. What I love most about March Madness is that it’s not about big-name, high-profile, professional players. There’s no LeBron James or Steph Curry. It’s just a team of five guys from a college trying to do anything they can to win the next game. Many of the games are nail-biters that come down to the last three-point shot as the final buzzer sounds. If you’re not familiar with the tournament but are interested in jumping on the March Madness bandwagon, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s everything you need to know about the NCAA (that’s National Collegiate Athletic Association) tourney.
