March Madness is Here

March Madness has arrived. Print your bracket now. Here's a quick analysis of the field and a look at the five top snubs. As for Selection Sunday, Charles Barkley was a disaster on commentary, the bracket somehow leaked before the official announcement and a bunch of teams celebrated their appearance in the tourney. My favorite moment of the weekend was the entrance of Oregon's Casey Benson and this angry VCU cheerleader. Lastly, play SI's Tournament Bracket Challenge and win lots of moolah.


Strange Moments in High School Hoops

Here's one I've never seen before. During the second overtime of Friday's Iowa 4A state semifinals between Valley and Pleasant Valley, Valley won the tip and held the ball for the entire four-minute period (there's no shot clock) before winning on the final shot.
