Are you ready for March Madness?
The men’s NCAA basketball tournament begins Tuesday night, with two play-in games taking place in Dayton, Ohio.
The first game will tip off at 6:30 p.m., and it will feature the UNC Asheville Bulldogs taking on the University of Arkansas-Little Rock Trojans. The winner of that game will have the distinct pleasure of flying to Washington, D.C., on to face the top-seeded Pittsburgh Panthers in the Southeast region on Thursday.
The second matchup of the night carries a bit more weight, with the University of Alabama-Birmingham Blazers taking on the Clemson Tigers. The winner will be the 12-seed in the East region and will face West Virginia on Thursday in Tampa, Fla.
