Today marks the final Sweet Sixteen games in the NCAA March Madness tournament. Interestingly today also marks the 76th Anniversary of the very first NCAA championship tournament game played between the University of Oregon and Ohio State University at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. Oregon won the tournament which was played between just eight teams at the time.
A great deal has changed in seventy-six years with 68 teams now participating in the immensely popular college basketball tournament. Last night’s winning teams: the Kentucky Wildcats, Wisconsin Badgers, Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Arizona Wildcats head up the Elite 8.
Tonight the UCLA Bruins will be going up against the Gonzaga Bulldogs and the Utah Utes face the Duke Blue Devils in the South Regionals at the NRG Stadium in Houston, TX. In addition, the North Carolina State Wolfpacks play the Louisville Cardinals and the Michigan State Spartans face-off against the Oklahoma Sooners in the East Regionals at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, NY. The divisional winners of tonight’s games will complete the remaining Elite 8 spots.
The season-long undefeated Kentucky Wildcats are the favored team to win the competition at the championship game on April 6th at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN and if you’re a Wildcats fan there is no better time to show your team support than wearing a wristwatch in your team’s colors of blue and white.
