March Madness is 75 years old
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the NCAA college basketball tournament. The best Division One college powerhouses will meet in a single-elimination tournament that promises to be particularly competitive this year. There are no remaining undefeated teams in college basketball, and the top five rankings have been especially volatile. So it's anybody's tournament.
Competing teams must go through elimination hoops
The Final Four will meet in the Atlanta Georgia Dome on April 8, 2013. Those fortunate four teams will emerge from a venue of 68 teams that began their second tier regional competitions in tournaments from San Jose to Philadelphia. In between those two ends of our country look for second- and third-round elimination tournaments in Salt Lake City, Austin, Kansas City, Dayton, Auburn Hills (Mich.) and Lexington (Ky.).
At-large teams have to travel some
Many teams will, as in the past, automatically eligible by virtue of winning their conferences. However, 37 teams can hope for “at-large” invitations, where they might be asked to travel some distance from their home campuses.
