March Sadness

Overview of March Madness.

The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament, also known as NCAA March Madness, is a single-elimination “bracket”  tournament played each spring to determine the national championship. Americans participate in this by filling out brackets on who will win for each game.

      Every year people cry, scream and shout hoping for their brackets to make it. First prize is $1 million a year for life for the person who can pick a perfect Sweet 16, the final 16 teams left, in the tournament. One catch to enter the contest: You must be an employee at Berkshire Hathaway, where Warren Buffett is CEO.

      This year the Virginia Cavaliers and the Texas Tech Red Raiders played overtime in Minneapolis to see who would win. The Virginia Cavaliers captures their first national title in school history.
