Villanova Looks to Regain the Championship in 2017

The NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournament is going to get started this month with the men going head-to-head first.

Teams from across the country will represent their schools in hopes of taking home a win in the final round of competition. For the past three decades, a large percentage of sports fans participate in a bracket style competition to pick winners for each game.


Gambling is a serious issue, and should be treated. I am not suggesting that one needs to place a bet behind their bracket to enjoy the tournament. These suggestions are only suggestions. I used data from the NCAA main website to arrive at my point of view.

Currently, ESPN has a free platform that generates brackets, and allows people to vote on which teams will win games during March Madness 2017.

Next, browse over my top three upsets for the upcoming men’s tournament.

  • UCLA upsets Kentucky in the Elite 8.
  • Louisville over Creighton in the Elite 8.
  • UNC Wilmington beats University of Virginia in the first round of the playoffs.

Fill out a bracket, and connect with NCAA March Madness 2017 on social media for updates.
