March Madness

THE ROAD TO THE FINAL FOUR BEGINS MARCH 13TH

For the win

Here's some terminology to help you better understand what March Madness is really all about.

“THE BIG DANCE”

Another name for the NCAA Basketball Tournament.

“SELECTION SUNDAY”

The official start to March Madness is on Selection Sunday when the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee reveals the 68 teams that have been selected for the field for that year’s tournament.

“BRACKETOLOGY”

Bracketology refers to predicting the winners of the "Big Dance."

“BRACKET BUSTER”

Refers to a team that upsets a favorite, thus ruining your bracket because you predicted that the higher ranked team would advance in the tournament.

“CUTTING DOWN THE NET”

Typically, teams will cut down the nets after the regional wins and after the National Championship Game. Popularized by coaches when North Carolina State coach Everett Case cut down the nets in 1947 after a Southern Conference title win.
