NCAA Division I Men’s Selection Committee Reveal Tournament Schedule

BasketballMarch Madness is upon us, my friends!  Woo hoo!  The time when college kids and alumni can root on the home team in the quest to proclaim their school the national champs!  As an Indiana University grad, March was always a a crazy exciting time for us.

Today, the NCAA Division I men’s selection committee revealed the 68 basketball teams who will grace the 2016 men’s tournament.    Much to my husband’s supreme disappointment and irritation, Valparaiso didn’t make the cut.  Any other teams you think were snubbed?
