March Madness: Patch Has You Covered
The NCAA men's basketball tournament begins Tuesday. Here's clickable help.
The madness is about to begin. March Madness is perhaps the most frenzied postseason in all of sports.
The NCAA men's basketball tournament each year captures the national imagination. In basketball, it's truly possible for a so-called underdog or little-known school to catch fire and run the table, all the way to the title.
No New Jersey teams will be competing in March Madness this year, as Rutgers extended its ironman streak of missing the tournament to 22 years in a row.
Tonight, the action begins, with play-in games featuring Liberty (15-20) vs. North Carolina A&T (19-16) and Middle Tennessee State (28-5) vs. Saint Mary's (27-6). On Wednesday, LIU Brooklyn (20-13) plays James Madison (20-14) and Boise State (21-10) battles La Salle (21-9).
Then the full schedule begins Thursday.
