65 reasons we love the Madness of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament

It’s the Big Dance. It’s March Madness. Call it what you want, but the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is arguably the biggest event on the sports calendar. And whether you’re a basketball junkie, a casual fan or watching college hoops for the first time, the NCAA Tournament has something for everyone to get excited about. The David vs. Goliath story lines, the drama of lose and go home, the buzzer-beaters and the brackets. We love it all and here are 65 reasons why.

65. The play-in game. Okay, we actually hate the play-in game, but since the tournament expanded by one, so did we. Nobody watches it, the loser doesn’t even feel like they played in the tournament and the winner gets a date with the top seed. Have fun!
