Well my yearly posting of all the teams in each region continues this season. College basketball is my favorite time of the year. Since the Redskins have stunk it up since about the year 1903(just kidding, sort of) I turned to college basketball as my #1 sport many years ago. Just a short road trip away from Allen Fieldhouse, One of, if not the 'holy grail " for watching a college basketball game I fell in love with the game almost instantly. For any college BB fans out there, post your comments and enjoy March Madness. !
When did they add the extra play-in games? Last time I really paid attention, it was just the one play-in game.
a few years years ago I think, when the field expanded from 64 to 68, they started the First Four, as in the first four teams to make it in the whole bracket as play in games, then your traditional 64 teams. VCU if you remember with Shaka Smart(who now coaches Texas) took VCU from the first four in to the Final Four a few years back.I may be mistaken but I believe George Mason did it also here a few years ago.

congrats to Villanova ,clearly the best team almost this whole season.2 championships in the last 3 years, and they won every game in this tournament by double digits.my Jayhawks went to the Final 4 this season with clearly not one of their better teams over the years,so it was a heck of a ride and I enjoyed the whole year immensely. No regrets or disappointment for me with my KU squad. the city/area of Philadelphia now has a NFL Championship and a college basketball championship.happy times in that region of Pennsylvania.
