March plays host to one of the great events in the sports year. The NCAA Tournament is truly an event that captures the attention of a nation. Work related material takes a back seat to the office pool, old college friends gather at the bar for a chance to reunite & root for the Alma mater and the student body of schools around the nation unify as their school takes on the spotlight of the big dance.
Championship week gets the show rolling as college basketball begins to make its mark on the sports calendar. From the America East to the West Coast Conference, each conference will have their time to shine as they crown a champion over the week. Winning your conference tournament is special achievement as you are honored with a prized spot in the NCAA Tournament.
