Winning at the Big Dance

Watching selection Sunday can bring both heartbreak and excitement for any basketball fan. 66 teams start––but only team one finishes on top. It allows all fans to pick their favorite—including an alma mater, local team or a national powerhouse. Like a lunch great lunch buffet, the action continues until the tournament winner is crowned.

When I visit with organizations during these weeks, talking about the NCAA Tournament is a nice ice-breaker. We find out favorites and a few surprise selections. Whatever the outcome, the tournament is an exciting time in college sports and highlights incredible games from around the country. It highlights all kinds of winning programs and reinvigorates alumni to pay a little closer attention during the month on March.
