March Madness Is Back For Another Year

Students and staff fill out brackets and watch games of the NCAA Basketball Tournaments

When March rolls around the corner, there’s a couple of things that could come to mind. What parade am I going to for St. Patrick’s Day? Is Easter in March or April this year? And most importantly, how accurate is my March Madness bracket going to be? For students and staff around Liberty, this is the question that is on their minds.

March Madness is the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball tournament, where 64 teams in four regions compete for the national championship.

It is also a good way for people across the world to show off their knowledge of NCAA Men’s Basketball. Students do this by trying to correctly predict all 67 games of the tournament. According to the NCAA, between 60 and 100 million March Madness brackets are filled out every year, and it is a big deal for people around Liberty.

Sports And Society teacher Mr. Parks had students fill out March Madness brackets for their basketball unit.

“We try to make the Basketball Unit line up with March Madness, and it’s good to have students watch basketball if they haven’t watched basketball before. It’s good to talk about (March Madness) with your friends and family,” Parks said.

It’s not just teachers and staff who are excited about the tournament though. Junior Shaun Dobratz had his friends and classmates fill out March Madness brackets for bragging rights. 

“It started off a couple years ago, me and my family had a bracket, and I thought it would be pretty cool if I brought it to Liberty,” Dobratz said. “It was cool to see people who didn’t know much about basketball be included (in filling out the bracket).” 

March Madness brings sports lovers together, and that’s exactly what we need at Liberty.
