Anybody following this? Any connections to the teams that are in? Any other favorites?

It's my favorite sporting event besides pro (American) football. I think I've filled out a bracket every year since 1985 or so. I don't have time to watch much sports in general but I love the "one and done" aspect of it, single elimination. Always has some Davids beating Goliaths, at least for awhile. Great tournament, three great weekends.

Yeah for sure.  Missing one of most important players from an injury too.  Good to have experienced guard play in the tournament, and they have guys that can get hot.

I have no understanding of what this thread is all about.  Some sort of modern American religion maybe?    Big Grin

It's basketball.    My husband won a big $10 bucks in a basketball pool.  He would have won $300 but he was off by one team. Darn.

It was a good tournament.  The final four had a lack of Big Time schools but the games were all close and exciting.  Best three weeks in sports imho.
