Yes, it is that time of year again. Some of you will take vacation time, others will call-in sick to work and others will just sit and enjoy the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Whatever your case is, sit down, relax and enjoy the ride.

Selection Sunday is now over and 68 teams have been selected. This year’s Final Four will take place at NRG Stadium in Houston, TX.

The Number 1 seeds selected for this year are Kansas, Oregon, North Carolina and Virginia.

The Pac 12 Conference has placed a record seven teams in the tournament.

“The Pac-12 was as deep as any conference in the nation this season and we are thrilled the committee rewarded the great play of our teams,” mentioned Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott. “We look forward to our deserving student-athletes competing deep into the tournament.”

A lot of our preparation is about ourselves.”
