Almost nightly teams are punching their tickets to the Big Dance and filling a line on the all elusive 68 team bracket that initially began as a 8 team tournament back in 1939. Since then it has grown to epidemic proportions in terms of intrigue and excitement that it brings not only to our country, but also globally!

The New Year has begun and every team in a sense gets to start fresh with a 0-0 record and in the hunt for a conference championship! The opportunity to represent your school and compete against your conference rivals week in and week out is a terrific challenge! The race to cutting down the nets will be fierce and intense in every league as coaches and players alike are in hopes of winning a championship ring! The roller coaster journey is a marathon rather than a sprint but those who perform the best will find themselves in the greatest spectacle in sports come March, the NCAA Tournament! Have fun and enjoy the ride as your favorite ball club tries to punch their ticket to March Madness!
