The Month of March
March Madness
You're pretty much out of time to fill out the perfect NCAA Tournament bracket, but we hope luck is on your side! In the meantime, here's some fun facts about some fan-favorites...

1. UCLA .  There are 16 past UCLA basketball players who are currently playing in the NBA. The Bruins hold 11 national titles for NCAA, 19 of which were earned under famed coach John Wooden. Oh, and they weren't always Bruins... they started out as Cubs and Grizzlies.

2. Kansas. The Jayhawks have the longest current division/conference winning streak in all sports - the team clinched its 10th straight Big 12 conference championship in 2014. During that stretch, Kansas won six out of nine Big 12 tournaments.

3. Duke
Coach Krzyzewski (pronounced: She-shef-ski) has the most career wins (more than 1,000) out of any male college basketball coach. Want to check out a home game? Die-hard fans only. With the Duke-UNC rivalry, students must camp out for one or two months in K-ville, which turns into a temporary tent city with the first tent going up over winter break.

4. Arizona. The University of Arizona was the first university in Arizona and fans are getting antsy. Coach Sean Miller is the best coach to ever reach the Final Four, but has yet to win a National Championship. 

5. North Carolina.  The Tar Heels have five NCAA National Championships under their belt. The school has produced top NBA players, including His Airness, Michael Jordan. The school colors are so iconic that the particular shade of blue is referred to as "Carolina blue" - even the fire trucks are Carolina blue in Chapel Hill!
