Although it sounds hard to believe, the NCAA Basketball tournament (a.k.a.- March Madness) is once again upon us. Time to fill out those basketball brackets, scratch them out, and then rip them up. I think my favorite thing about March Madness is that even the casual fan becomes caught up in the excitement of going from 65 teams to 1 in a matter of a few weeks. Will Florida make it three in a row? Can KU and UNC meet in the finals? Are KU and KSU going to play a third time this year? Lots of questions and lots of basketball to be played.
For help in filling out those brackets we have two really awesome reference books available at MPL:
ESPN Sports Almanac 2008
Sports Illustrated Almanac 2008
Find average margins of victory for your teams, road wins, rpi ratings, etc.
So be ready to bring the knowledge and GO CATS!
