Saturday marked the beginning of March. Now, we can really talk about March Madness.
Tomorrow (March 6), the high school basketball playoffs resume. One local team, the Arkoma Lady Mustangs are in the Class A State Tournament. Eight others hope to be there by the end of the week.
Then, a week from Sunday is Selection Sunday â€” the day when the 2014 NCAA Tournament pairings are announced, which is the true thought when the phrase March Madness is uttered. Just for the record, the next night will be the Women's NCAA Tournament selection show. Then, you throw in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) and the WNIT and the CBE Invitational, it truly will be March Madness.
If you're a basketball junkie, you're about ready to literally be in "hoop heaven."
