March Madness will be starting soon with the 2017 bracket match-ups being announced on Sunday, March 12th between 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM. The games will start on Tuesday, March 14th, but the actual tournament will start on Thursday, March 16th. The championship game will be held on April 4th. March Madness is one of the biggest sporting events in the United States. Basketball fans everywhere try to guess the correct bracket that predicts perfectly each team that wins. March Madness is when the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) men’s and women’s basketball tournaments are held. College basketball teams across the county compete to earn a place in the tournament. While many teams fight for a spot, only 68 teams can compete. With all of this being said, after the first weekend only 16 teams can move forward. During the second weekend, it gets narrowed from eight teams, down to the final four. After the four teams play, only two teams move forward to play the championship game. Be sure to tune in to see the exiting games this March Madness!
