What Is March Madness?
March Madness is that time of the year when the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) tournament is held – particularly, mid-March through the beginning of April. It is also known as the NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament or NCAA March Madness. It is a single-elimination league featuring 68 teams.
One of the biggest annual sporting events in the U.S., March Madness sees teams competing with each other to survive three weekends of games to determine the national champion. Out of 68 teams, only 16 teams make it past the 1st weekend. They are termed the Sweet Sixteen.
As the tournament enters the second weekend, only 8 teams make it to the field, which then reduces to the Final Four. Finally, the semi-finalists (4 teams) lock their horns for the national championship game.
