Ticket Guide for 2015 NCAA Basketball Tournament

BasketballSelection Sunday is here!  For anyone that is getting practically weak in the knees for March Madness and the men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament, the wait is nearly over!  The brackets were released today, and there are some pretty surprising match up and results.   The tops seeds of the different divisions include the Kentucky Wildcats (Midwest), Villanova (East), Wisconsin (West) and Duke (South).  Kentucky is the 19th team to enter the NCAA tournament to ever be undefeated. Another fun fact about the Wildcats, they will be the first undefeated team in 39 years to not have to travel more than five hours away from their home turf during the NCAA Tournament.  Some scuttlebutt considers the most controversial selection to be the 11th seeded UCLA to make the field and they manage to avoid the First Four in Dayton even though they had a 2-8 record against the top 50 teams.

All these teams are vying for trip to the Final Four in Indianapolis on April 4.
